Teen drama tackles problem gambling dramaworks has received a grant from the State Office of Problem Gambling and Friday Night Live to bring this issue of compulsive gambling to public attention. Most people can gamble from time to time without any ill effect. However, a few teens and adults lose per- spective and become addict- ed very quickly. Five percent of all teens are estimated tohave a gam- bling problem. The rate of problem gambling among high school students is twice as high as that for older adults. Students end up with huge debts, depression, seri- ous problems in their rela- tionships with friends and family, and involvement with people who may be in- volved with organized crime. Gambling is shown in TV, in movies anc on the Inter- net as a harmless and fun ac- tivity and for many it is. However, teens are young and lack the judgment to know when to say "enough." Signs a teen has a problem are: borrowing money he can't repay it, selling person- al belongings, lying and stealing, large debts, missed school or work, depression NEW HOHES GARAGES CARPORTS REHODELS COHHERCIAL BLDGS. and may even become suici- dal. dramaworks made a movie last year called "Risk It All" about a teen who gets into deep financial trouble and then calls 1-800-GAM- BLER to get help. This year, youth will put on plays for their peers and the public on this touchy subject. Youth, 15-25, are encour- aged to audition at the Feather Arts Center in Por- tola Tuesday, April 14, at 6 p.m. Pizza will be provided. Director Aleks Hewitt is looking for youth willing to work hard and have some fun too. For more informa- tion e-mail Edie O'Connor at To see "Risk It All" or purchase a copy, call 283-1956. Problem gambling is a real problem for many teens and youth. If you fear you have a problem, call (800) GAM- BLER for help. CORRECTION A story about the resigna- tion of Dr. Eric Wattenburg in the March 18, 2009, edi- tions read, "Chief Executive Officer Richard Hathaway announced his resignation at the board's March meet- ing," incorrectly implying Hathaway had resigned. The story should have read, "Chief Executive Offi- cer Richard Hathaway an- nounced Wattenburg's resig- nation at the board's March meeting." Feather Publishing re- grets the error.
