In 1998, on Kate- n's third birthday, Bob was agnosed with Multiple Scle- rosis (M.S.), which is a disease that attacks the Central Nerv- ous System. S nptoms of M.S. include numu tess in the limbs, paraly- sis, or even loss of vision. "The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpre- dictable and vary from one person to another," according to the National Multiple Scle- rosis Society. There are three different types of M.S and the one that Anderson has is called Sec- ondary- Progressive, which means that the disease is al- ways slowly progressing with or without any relapses or at- tacks. The variety of medicines and plethora of treatments to help slow the progression of Anderson's disease has made his immune system weaker than one of a healthy person, so when he got sick last Sep- tember he had to spend a week at Stanford Health in Fargo and a week at Altru's Rehabl'l- itation Center in Grand Forks. The bouts in the hospital so close to each other took a huge toll on Anderson's health.

This is just one of the statistics that led Hayley Fin- garson of Valley-Edinburg High School to choose this subject for her FCCLA STAR (Students Taking Action with Recogni- tion) Event project "Don't Text Yourself to Death". First, Fingarson encouraged all Valley- Edinburg High School Students to take the AT&T It Can Wait pledge at www. itcanwait.com. Fingarson then set a goal to educate beginning drivers about the dangers of texting and driving. Her project began with a pre-test to assess eighth and ninth grade students' attitudes about texting and driving, a speech which included facts and educational videos about the dangers, and distribution of thumb rings to remind students to not text while driving. She also organized a presentation by State Highway Patrolman Matt Peschong, who addressed the Valley-Edinburg 8-12 grades and gave a demonstration using a roll-over simulator to illustrate the im- portance of seat belt use should drivers be involved in a crash caused by texting or Photo: Submitted Above: State Highway Patrolman Matt Peschong demonstrates a rollover while Hayley Fingarson and other Valley-Edinburg students look.
