John Underwood, director of the American Athletic Institute, spoke rapid-fire for two hours to youths and parents Tuesday at a town-hall meeting in Kalispell hosted by Stop Underage Drinking in the Flathead Coalition.

Underwood’s message was stark: Alcohol and drugs used by those from their teens to early 20s damage the brain, diminishing athletic and other performance for life.

            Thank you- STOP UNDERAGE DRINKING IN THE FLATHEAD COALITION for bringing John Underwood to the Flathead Valley.
            Parents take a firm stand against any form of alcohol, tobacco or other drug use. Do not accept getting high or drunk as normal at any age. Do not serve alcohol to underage kids and don't allow them to bring tobacco, alcohol or other drugs into your home. Establish rules, curfews, and consequences. Exercise parental authority.

            If you want to really see the how law enforcement deals with alcohol just attend the policemens ball. I do not use alcohol my self but did grow up seeing the effect it had on my parents, that along with smoking . I do support the underage drinking coalition but I think Curry is overstating the evil of marijuna. I do support the medical marijuna issue .Our own state A.G. has said 300 people die from prescription drugs every year in this state but this was never mentioned . Yes alcohol, prescription drugs , illegal drugs , and tobacco use are problems every parent needs to discuss with their children but also they need to lead by example. Look at all the thugs ,alcohol ,and drugs that are in professional sports today ,yet everyone watches and looks up to these "stars" every weekend wanting their little Johnny or Jane to grow up and play professioal sports . Using athetics as a example is a very poor choice ,instead maybe show some statistics showing your SAT test scores following a night of drinking .

            Thanks for the information. I wish I could have somehow known this event had been planned and that I might have been invited.
            This guy should be welcome to speak at our high schools.
