Couesyphos AG King targets underage drinking legislative proposals for 2009 Information courtesy AG KING'S OFFICEI Santa Fe Attorney General Gary King last week previewed his 2009 Legislative Session proposals to address underage drinking among New Mexico youth. "Underage drinking in New Mexico may cost taxpayers 243- million dollars a year," says At- torney General Gary King. "But Dreams Once a man gives up chas- i ing...his dreams, he needs to fred n-spot. :on a cool mountain' [ iw.hexe fish and gameare ]bountiful, and settle down with la woman who will feed him more importantly, many underage drinkers in our state are paying with their lives and it has to stop now." Last fall the US Surgeon General issued the "Surgeon General's Call to Action to Pre- vent and Reduce Underage Drink- ing". He noted that 38% of alco- hol-related traffic deaths involve underage drinkers; and 32% of youth homicides involve alco- hol. In an effort to combat this frightening behavior, in addition to educating parents and teens. Attorney General K!ng is work- ing with the Santa F, :Underage Drinking Prevention Alliance and others across NM to propose the following legislation: Ban Caffeinated Alcohol Energy Drinks Prohibit Underage Intoxi- cation Regulate Alcohol Adver- tising to Minors Expand County Option for Taxing Alcohol Tax Flavored Malt Bever- ages, aka "Alcopops" at an appro- priate rate The Journal of the Study of Alcohol and Drugs recently re- ported that 20% of all alcohol is consumed by underage drinkers. In New Mexico. it is estimated that underage drinkers account for $100 million in alcohol sales yet the cost of underage drinking to NM taxpayers is roughly $243 million, the total of all alcohol abuse is estimated to'b$2.rl'bil - lion dollars.

Most of us don't give our mental health much at- tention unless we are facing a serious problem. That's too bad, because in today's compli- cated and troubled world most of us could stand to reduce our stress and worry, and to feel better about ourselves. Think of improving your mental health as similar to im- proving your physical health. Just as exercise gets your muscles in better shape, there are things you can do to get your feelings and attitudes into bet- ter shape. How to begin? Start by making time for yourself. In today's busy world it's easy to fill our days with work, family and social obligations, leaving little or no time for ourselves. The fix for that is to include "you" in your daily schedule. Create a real schedule that in- eludes time each day for at least one thing you find relaxing or enjoyable. Maybe it's reading a book. working at a hobby, or just taking a relaxing walk. Put it in your schedule and make sure it happens. Getting involved with oth- ers is another way to reduce stress and feel better about your- self. Today's tough economic times have many community, civic and religious organizations searching for volunteers to help carry out their w'ork. Giving something back to the community can offer a meaningful escape from your own problems (and often puts such problems in a better per- spective) while also providing a sense of fulfillment and self- worth that's essential for good mental health. And don't ignore staying physically fit as a means to im- prove mental health. Studies find regular exercise is a great way to fight depressions for ex- ample. Plus, as we get ourselves into better shape, we usually start to feel more confident about ourselves - everything from how we look to what we can do. ;And that's good mental health. No. you Can't make stress and']3tobtems just' dtisapeat, b0t building a little relaxation into your life, helping those in need and staying physically active can all improve mental health and make it easier to cope with the problems you will face.
