CITY & TOWN
The 74th Convention
has arrived!
The League’s 74th Convention, June 18-20 in
Hot Springs, is just weeks away, and the program
is falling into place nicely, says League Assistant
Director Ken Wasson. City & Town dropped by
Wasson’s office to get the lowdown on the event’s
speakers, workshops and more.
Q
A
Q
A
Are you expecting a good turnout this
year?
Yes, we’re expecting a great crowd.
The early registration numbers are up,
and attendance should be as good if not
better than last year.
Who will speak at the 74th Convention,
and which speakers are you especially
looking forward to hearing?
Of course it’s always interesting to hear
Gov. Mike Beebe’s take on municipal
issues. He’ll speak at Thursday’s General
Session. We’ll have several state legislators join us,
including Speaker of the House-elect Robbie Wills.
We’re very happy this year to have National League
of Cities Executive Director Don Borut join us and
share his views on municipal issues from a national
perspective. And U.S. Rep. Mike Ross will join us for
Friday’s new officers and awards luncheon. We look
forward to what he has to share with us.
Q
A
The Convention always covers a variety of
municipal issues. What do you think this
year’s hot topics will be?
Preparing for the 2009 legislative session
will be a very important issue this year. I
urge city and town leaders to attend the
annual business meeting at 9 a.m. Friday. The reso-
JUNE 2008
lutions we accept will become part of our League
legislative package.
The Convention workshops also cover a
variety of subjects. I’m often surprised at which
workshops draw the crowds. “When Disaster
Strikes: Preparation and Recovery” and “National
Flood Plain and Levee Protection” may be big ones
this year, especially after the devastating storms
we’ve faced so far this year. The workshop preparing city leaders for the 2010 census may also be
popular. And avoiding lawsuits, animal control and
land use workshops are always popular.
The exhibit hall is always bustling during
Convention. How have state agencies and
companies providing municipal services
and products responded this year?
Q
A
Q
A
Great! We’re on a pace to have more
exhibitors than we have in a number
of years.
Have we got some good food and entertainment lined up as well?
Of course! The opening night banquet is
always popular, and J.R. Rogers and the
All Star Band are back to entertain the
crowd. Thursday’s receptions, hosted by Crews &
Associates and Entergy, and a concert by country
singer John Conlee should be great fun.
Q
A
Is there still time to register?
Yes. See pages16-17 to register. We encourage everyone to make plans to attend.

Gilbert finds Bride
Sherman Banks, former president of Sister Cities International, continues his ongoing
series highlighting Arkansas’s Sister Cities participants and those looking to participate
by checking in with Gilbert, the state’s smallest municipality and the world’s smallest
sister city.
By Sherman Banks, guest writer
PHOTO BY JOHN WOODRUFF
Mitch Mortvedt is mayor of the smallest—and “coolest”—town in Arkansas. Gilbert is Sister Cities with another small community: Bride
on the Isle of Man.
S
ize and population make no difference
when it comes to establishing a Sister Cities
International relationship, and no town in
Arkansas—or the world, for that matter—
exemplifies this fact more than tiny Gilbert. With a
population of just 35, the town on the Buffalo River in
Searcy County has been sister cities with the commu8
nity of Bride on the Isle of Man since 2006. The two
are the smallest among the world’s sister cities.
I first received a call from Gilbert’s Evelyn Terhune
in 2004 to discuss the possibility of pursuing a sister
city relationship. I drove up to Gilbert to share a meal
with her and the town’s leadership and talk it over.
The local restaurant happened to be closed that
CITY & TOWN
day. Terhune apologized and said she would cook
and invite people over. We’d just have to wait and
see how many would show up. Well, out of the population of 35, 28 people showed. We enjoyed a wonderful, home-cooked meal and talked about sister
cities for several hours. After much deliberation, they
settled on Bride.
Bride is a community of about 130 on the north
end of the Isle of Man. The island is just 32 miles long
and about 13 miles wide and sits in the Irish Sea
between England, Scotland and Ireland. While not
a member of the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man is
Crown dependency. The Isle is known for several
of its indigenous species, including the Manx cat
and Loaghton sheep.
What do these two distant towns have in common? One common denominator is a desire to reach
out in the truest sense of citizen diplomacy to broaden
their horizons.
Getting Bride to accept was the next step.
After countless phone calls, mail and e-mail,
coupled with loads of down home southern hospitality, Gilbert persuaded Bride to agree to pursue the
relationship. After the two towns agreed upon a
letter of understanding, Alderman Bonnie Baker
and her husband Bill traveled to the Isle of Man to
hand deliver the written agreement for a brief signing
ceremony.
Despite most communication taking place only
online, the two towns have meshed quite easily.
At the end of May, Gilbert had its first educational
and cultural exchange with Bride, sending two
students to the Isle to live with a local family for
12 days.
The two sister cities have also produced a joint
cookbook, Our Best to You, which features favorite
dishes from local cooks in both communities, such as
green tomato pickles from Gilbert and “bonnag,” a
scone-like bread, from Bride.

PHOTOS BY ANDREW MORGAN, LEAGUE STAFF
Railroad Bridge, built in
1884, is part of the Six Bridges Plan, designed to
oversee the development, operation and maintenance of the six bridges crossing the river between
the cities. The Pulaski County Bridge Public Facilities
Board was established in 2002 to guide the plan.
Despite some excavation work left to do on the
south entrance of the Junction Bridge, Pulaski County
Judge Buddy Villines, U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder, Little
Rock Mayor Mark Stodola and North Little Rock
Mayor Pat Hays joined hundreds of walkers and
cyclists at the center of the bridge Saturday,
May 17, to celebrate its opening. Rather than cut a
ribbon, Villines tied a 900-foot ribbon as a symbol
of the joining of the neighboring cities separated by
the river.

Mayor Mark Stodola, U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder, former
Little Rock Mayor Jim Dailey and a crowd of several
hundred looking on—ties the ribbon at the middle point

County equalization boards
to meet in August
C
ounty equalization boards will meet Aug. 1
through Oct. 1 to equalize (adjust an assessment or tax to create a rate uniform
with another) the assessed value of all
acreage lands, city and town lots, other real property and personal property. The boards will meet as
often as necessary during this time to complete their
work (ACA § 26-27-309). If a county’s ratio of assessed-to-market value is out of compliance, the
equalization board may meet after Oct. 1, but no
later than the third Monday in November (ACA §
26-27-311).
County equalization boards have two responsibilities: (1) to review and equalize overall county assessments as assessed by the assessor, and (2) to
hear assessment appeals by property owners. The
board begins the review of assessments on Aug. 1,
when the county assessor delivers the completed assessment records to the county clerk, who serves as
the secretary for the board. Assessment appeals
from land owners begin no later than the second
Monday in August (ACA § 26-27-317).
Cities and towns have a part to play in deciding
who sits as a member of the county equalization
board. Cities and towns select one member of a fivemember board (counties with a population less than
75,000) and two members of a nine-member board
(counties with a population greater than 75,000)
(ACA § 26-27-303 and -304).
To select county equalization board members,
city and town representatives within the county shall
hold a meeting during the month of May of each
year in which the terms of any of the members of the
county equalization board shall expire (ACA § 2627-304(b)(2)(A)). The mayor of the city or town or
his or her designee shall serve as the representative
of his or her city or town (Id.). The mayor of the
county seat shall be the chair of the meeting, and if
there are dual county seats, the mayor of the larger
of the two seats shall be the chair of the meeting
(Id.). Those at the meeting shall select the member of
the board via majority vote, and each city or town
shall be entitled to one vote (Id.). No action shall be
taken unless a quorum is present. A majority of all of
the representatives of all cities and incorporated
towns in the county shall constitute a quorum (Id.).

Property Tax Equalization and Appeal System,” a
publication of the Assessment Coordination Department. For more information, contact John Wilkerson

Literacy councils honor Bush
T
he Arkansas Literacy Council in April awarded
Lake Village Mayor and League First Vice President JoAnne Bush its 2008 Win Paul Rockefeller Leadership Award for her
efforts in helping establish the fledgling Chicot
County Literacy Council.
In 2007 Bush met with a group of concerned citizens to talk about what services Lake Village
needed. An active literacy program was at the top
of the list. With that meeting the Chicot County Literacy Council and its parent organization, Delta
Crossroads Community Services, were born, and
Bush has worked to make sure the organizations get
off to the right start. She also worked to help the
Council establish a partnership with the Lake Village
Fire Department to provide fire prevention programs
for low-level readers in the area.
The award honors the late lieutenant governor,
10
who was one of the Literacy Council’s great supporters over the years.

households currently receiving over-the-air
signals for the switch.
Television sets connected to cable or satellite

to receive programming after the transition date.
Televisions not connected to cable or satellite, or
without an analog-to-digital converter box, will

LECC conference studies criminal
investigations, survival methods
U
sing online social networking sites in criminal investigations and surviving critical
incidents are two topics the Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC)
of Arkansas will tackle at a statewide conference
July 9-10 in Hot Springs. The two-day conference is
designed for police officers, detectives and criminal
analysts of every rank.
“Successful Integration of Online Social Networking into Criminal Investigations” is the subject
of the first day’s presentation. With over 300 known
social networking sites on the Internet, including
popular sites such as Myspace and Facebook,
investigators need to understand these communities
along with the tools, tricks and techniques to prevent, track and solve crimes.
Dr. Bobby Smith, who was blinded in a shooting
incident, will on the second day address “Critical
Incident Survival” and share how officers can
overcome personal tragedy and be successful.
Conference check-in and breakfast begins at
8 a.m., July 9, at the Clarion Resort on the Lake,
4813 Central Ave., Hot Springs. To receive the
group rate of $93 (single) or $103 (double), call the

PLANNING TO SUCCEED
Don’t let economic prejudice
ruin your community
Leave it to the experts to determine property values, not the fear mongers
who claim mixed-use developments will send property values spiraling downward.
By Jim vonTungeln
articipants in a land-use hearing who expound
about property values almost never know what
they are talking about. On those rare occasions
that they do, they are often wrong. In most cases,
the argument that a development will lower nearby property values simply represents the last refuge of the overwrought. Or so it seems to us.
The valuation of real property is a complex matter
and one best left to the experts. The top experts in the
P
The second, or cost approach, examines the depreciated value of a structure (if there is one) reproduced
using modern materials and building techniques.
The third, or income approach, capitalizes the value
of the income stream that the property might produce.
This is a highly specialized analysis that basically determines the value that a savvy investor would have to obtain in order to take the associated investment risk.
The values suggested by each of these approaches are
then reconciled into a single estimate of value. This value
is further adjusted for the time in which the property
must be sold, i.e., “scared money doesn’t win.”
The cost approach is most often only used as a reality
check. For commercial or rental properties, the income
approach carries the most weight. Specialized properties,
such as hotels, require the analysis of other determinants.
As we said, it is a complicated business.
For residential properties, the market approach is
generally the most reliable. It is so important that brokers
joke about the three components of value: “location, location, and location.”

field are those rated as “MAI Members” of the Appraisal
Institute. In residential matters, we may also depend
upon Senior Residential Members (SRAs) of the
Appraisal Institute. These are the folks to be trusted
in analyzing complex land-use issues from a valuation
aspect. Real estate agents and brokers are not, without
further credentials, appraisal experts, nor is an attorney
or a neighborhood spokesperson who sells insurance.
In undertaking the appraisal of real property, the
professionals examine the value of the property by three
methods. The first, or market approach, compares the
subject property with several others having similar characteristics and subject to similar influences. Using a type
of logic that hasn’t been taught in high schools since
the Kennedy Administration, the appraiser derives an
estimate of value based on similarities, differences, time
and sales prices.

A successful mixture of single-family homes and duplexes
in Searcy.
There’s the rub. When a location is hot, it’s hot because, well, because it’s hot. The fact that it is mixed-use
or that it has a diversity of land uses or housing types
may not account for much. These factors may even exert

upward pressure on values.
For example, our home is in a 13-story building
adjacent to a convenience store, a church/school, a freeway, a hotel, a park and single-family homes. The value
has doubled in seven years. This is despite the existence
of so-called negative influences nearby.
In another example, properties in the Hillcrest neighborhood of Little Rock probably demand the highest location-premiums, on a percentage basis, of any in the
state. The area contains a mixture of land uses, housing
types, and housing sizes—all mixed up as if in a fruit
cake. They all sell at well above the market for comparable properties. Talk about a desirable location: Last year,
two different developers in our state spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars to get a national firm to design
communities that what? Yep, that would be just like the
Hillcrest Neighborhood in Little Rock. Isn’t that a hoot?
So, take these opinions with a grain of salt when folks
tell you that such and such development is going to “destroy their housing values.” Concern that there may be a
mix of housing types, sizes, and densities in a certain part
of town is what we call “economic prejudice.” It is beginning to exact a terrible toll on cities, promising a “Balkanization” of neighborhoods.
It is also in conflict with the current need for higher
densities in light of higher fuel costs, climate consideration and a more rigorous atmosphere regarding the financing of home mortgages. To this end, the American
Planning Association recommends, in its draft Policy
Guide on Planning and Climate Change that we support
“… community design and public investment decisions
that create compact development patterns and higher
densities that reduce vehicle miles traveled within a community.”
JUNE 2008
Actually, you know what might really influence a
neighborhood’s housing values in a negative way? We believe that it would be a situation in which the neighborhood was full of mean-spirited people who would never
welcome anyone who wasn’t just like them. Ugh!

ANIMAL CORNER
Comic relief dispels gloom
In a profession where there’s no shortage of sadness, opportunities for laughter
are always welcome.
By Billy Grace
nimal control, for the most part, is
perceived to be a very gloomy profession.
Hardly a day goes by that we don’t hear
someone say, “I could not do your job.”
This is understandable. After all, we are the ones that
have to do the dirty work with the animals that most
of us love, and it is usually the result of someone’s
irresponsibility. Not exactly a recipe for a happy
workplace. There are times, however, when we can’t
help but laugh.
A
Here at North Little Rock Animal Control, we
preach and teach sterilization with every breath we take.
Everything we do is geared to motivate and encourage
people to sterilize their pets. That’s because we know
that, apart from euthanasia, it is the only way to reduce
the population.
It so happens that some of our most humorous
stories are the result of sterilization miscommunication.
One day a nice lady came into the shelter to reclaim
her dog. The employee working the front desk asked
if the dog had been sterilized. The lady replied, “No, not
this year.”
Another owner in response to the same question
replied, “No, but it’s not important because he is gay.”
Another one said, “Of course she is sterilized. We
want nice clean puppies.”
Once, while one of our animal control officers was
providing courtroom testimony, the judge looked down
from the bench and asked, “What was the demeanor of
the dogs?” Totally confused, the animal control officer
replied, “One wasn’t any meaner than the other one.”
Sometimes the miscommunication is intentional.
While attempting to apprehend a rottweiler, one
of our animal control officers chased the dog to a front
porch where a Hispanic male was standing. When asked
if it was his dog the man replied, “No hablo ingles.” When
the officer responded with “Es este su perro,” the man
replied in perfect English, “Oh, it’s my friend’s dog.”
34
Humor is sometimes the result of ignorance. Such
was the case with the lady who brought in a litter of
kittens. She was confused because the only male cat that
the female had been exposed to was the cat’s brother. Or
the owner who said his dog never gets out. When asked
if he ever took his dog to a veterinarian, he replied, “The
only time he went to a vet was when he got hit by a car.”
Once a lady called to report a “meth rat” in her garbage
can. She described it as having “a face like a person.” It
turned out to be an opossum.
We have a mentally deranged citizen who constantly
calls the animal shelter convinced that her home is full
of snakes. We have searched her home many times, and
never once have we found a sign of a snake. Once, she
even barred the door refusing to let the animal control
officer leave without finding the snakes. We had to call
the police in order to get him out of the house. We have
tried numerous times without success to get her professional help. Once, after she had called several times, one
of our employees took a rubber snake inside her home
without this person knowing it. The officer pretended to
pull the rubber snake out from under the kitchen cabinet
and left the home with it. This seemed to satisfy her
because she did not call back for some time. It was only
temporary, however, because she is calling again.
In this very busy, frustrating, and sometimes
confrontational profession, humor can be beneficial
as long as it doesn’t offend others. There are times
when it helps just to have something to laugh about.
It’s a lot like police work. Sometimes you laugh just
to keep from crying.

ENGINEERING PERSPECTIVE
Protection against flooding
expensive but necessary
With recent storms throughout the state pushing flood waters to near 100-year levels,
it’s more important than ever to follow FEMA’s floodplain maps when building.
By A.E. (Al) Johnson
et me assure you that the recent flood elevation
on the lower White River is well above the old
high-water marks on the Cypress trees. The
recent series of severe storms combined with
the high water on the Mississippi River approached the
infamous 100-year flood event.
Frequently, when I am asked to establish a building
pad elevation in a low area, my client will ask, “Does it
have to be that high?” and, “Do you have any idea how
much this fill dirt is costing me?”
“Yes,” I answer to both questions. And, I will go on
to explain that if it were my building pad, I would put it
up an additional foot.
Of all natural disasters, nothing is worse than flooding. There is nothing that can be done once the water
starts to rise. Flooding, unlike other natural disasters,
may be around for weeks.
When the flood water finally recedes, surfaces are
coated with an oily chemical film, there is a deep layer of
silt on the floor, and many of the grasses and shrubs will
be dead.
Even though the flooded building remains standing,
there is the possibility that the foundation has been
undermined or the soil-bearing capacity lost.
Water-saturated floors and walls will begin to buckle
and delaminate.
The electrical circuits have been short circuited, the
potable water supply is questionable, and sewer lines are
clogged. Also, flooding creates the perfect environment
for decaying organic matter and mold.
The Federal Emergency Management Administration
was given the responsibility for identifying and mapping
flood-prone areas where builders and residences in those
areas should protect themselves by obtaining flood insurance. Most cities and counties have FEMA flood insurance maps. These FEMA maps can be amended and are
occasionally updated.
Unfortunately, these maps are not readily available,
and they are not easy to read. Consequently, most local
jurisdictions have one employee designated as the “floodplain administrator.” In addition to helping builders and
developers establish safe floor elevations, the floodplain
administrator also has enforcement responsibilities.
L
36
FEMA floodplain maps identify the floodplain,
where ground will be inundated with a 100-year event.
Within this floodplain is the floodway that must carry
the runoff in order for the flood waters to recede. No
embankment or structure can be placed in the floodway
that will obstruct the runoff.
Embankments and structures may be placed in the
floodplain, provided they do not result in an increase in
the 100 year flood elevation.
On most FEMA maps, areas outside the 100-year
floodplain are identified in different ways, such as areas
one foot above the 100-year flood or in an area subject
to a 500-year flood event. These areas are acceptable for
development.
The FEMA map also shows backwater elevations and
unmapped areas.
The floodplain administrator is responsible for
protecting the integrity of the floodplain and floodway
in addition to assisting homeowners and determining if
they are in a flood-prone area and helping builders to
make sure they stay a minimum of one foot above the
100-year elevation.
Flooding does not just occur when rivers rise out of
their banks. Flooding can occur in dry mountainous
areas when an isolated heavy rainfall event occurs. Flooding can occur along a drainage ditch in a subdivision.
In my experience, FEMA maps are very dependable if
properly interpreted.
It’s better to be safe than sorry. Check with your
floodplain administrator before you jump in the water!
Home builders and developers can give city engineers,
building inspectors and code enforcement officers a lot
of headaches. Builders and developers are in the business
to make money. And there is nothing wrong with making
money. If you don’t make money, you won’t stay in business. Most builders and developers have chosen the construction field over other vocations because they get great
satisfaction out of seeing the infrastructure, homes and
commercial buildings that they have designed and constructed become reality.
Builders and developers are in competition with
other builders and developers. Consequently, there is a
constant temptation to try to save money. In the conCITY & TOWN
struction business, they call it cutting corners.
It is the job of the city engineer and the building
inspector to make sure that overall performance and
safety is not compromised. Thus, we have the conflict
between the city and the developers and builders.
When economic times are good, conflicts between
builders and developers and the city regulators are
difficult to resolve, but usually a compromise can
be achieved.
When economic times are bad, cutting corners gets
a lot more serious, and there can be a lot more at stake,
including bankruptcy.
We must remember that cities are at risk when
builders and developers experience difficult economic
times. Partially finished houses can become havens for
drug dealers and vandals.
Undeveloped subdivisions with partially complete
storm drain systems and unpaved streets will eventually
become the responsibility of the city.
There is another downside to the fall in home building and subdivision development: loss of city revenue.
Municipal sales tax revenues will take an immediate hit.
Revenue from building permits and inspections will decline significantly. Unoccupied houses do not pay for
water, wastewater and trash pickup.
The cost per household for providing the police
and fire protection in partially developed subdivisions
is significantly higher than average.
Over the long term, the value of homes in partially
finished subdivisions and areas with high foreclosure
rates will fall, thereby reducing the real property tax base.
The housing market went through five years with
more demand than supply. Much of this demand was
supported by unrealistic financing schemes. In the blind
rush to collect “origination fees” and “up front points”
from home buyers, the lending institutions created “zero”
down, variable rate and interest only loans, with closing
costs rolled into the financing of the house.
With the increase in interest rates and the softer
housing market, the small amount of home equity
vanished, and many payments skyrocketed.
Home foreclosure notices and bankruptcy filings
now greatly outnumber building permits and real estate
transfers in our newspapers.
This country is resilient, however. Our forefathers
made it through the Great Depression, and some of us
remember the fuel crisis and 20 percent interest rates
of the 1970s.
The 1980s saw the collapse of our savings and loan
institutions because of their inability to regulate themselves after they had been granted financial freedom. The
federal government had to establish the resolution trust
to manage the assets of the distressed S&Ls and recover
some the shareholders’ and account owners’ equity. The
free enterprise system has its ups and downs, and when
there is a big down, government gets involved.
This writer looks at the housing bust as an early
warning sign: We need to adjust our standard of living
to meet our means. If we can’t adjust, work a second job
instead of playing golf on the weekends.
My preaching is over. Now, let’s get back to cities.
With the recent turmoil in the stock market due to the
housing slowdown, investors are looking favorably
toward municipal bonds, even though their yield is
relatively low.
The municipal revenue base is definitely going to be
impacted by the housing bust. Most municipal bonds are
paid off by dedicated revenue. Use good financial judgment over the next couple of years until we get back to
a more balanced supply and demand in the housing
market. And try to work with the builders and developers
in the community. You have as much to gain seeing a
project completed as they do.

a surprising trend, as the average person spends about
90 percent of his or her life indoors, leaving a constant
craving for fresh air. A recent study also showed that
many people’s fondest memories reflect an occurrence
that took place outdoors.
Couple those findings with abundant evidence
supporting the therapeutic benefits of exercising and
spending time outdoors, and it makes sense to move exercise routines into the open air.
T
Soaking up the benefits
Moving from the gym to the outdoors immediately
provides a boost.
The second you step outside, exposure to the sunlight helps your body meet the recommended requirement of vitamin D. The function of vitamin D is to make
sure your system maintains normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. A deficiency of vitamin D can
lead to diseases such as rickets and can contribute to
osteoporosis by reducing calcium absorption.
Recent findings show that clinical depression affects
about 10 percent of adults in the United States. Exercise,
especially in the outdoors, is therapeutic for people with
symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of exercising outdoors is
that you are more likely to continue exercising than those
relegated to indoor gyms. That’s because there are more
changing variables in the outdoors than the four walls at
a local gym, including the weather and scenery.
Start small
Though the choices for getting fit outdoors are
plenty, the easiest way to transfer your workouts from
the gym to the fresh air is starting with the basics.
You don’t need a weight bench or fancy equipment.
38
Lunges, for example, will work every muscle in your legs
depending on the different variations.
Other exercises that can easily be incorporated into
an outdoor routine include push ups, squats, step-ups
on a park bench or low wall and uphill sprints. Playground equipment or even low-hanging tree branches
can be used for chin-ups and other stretches and
muscle-toning exercises.
Be prepared
Along with the benefits of exercising outdoors
come some precautions and safety measures that should
be taken.
Though spring and fall in Arkansas are ideal for
outdoor exertion, summer can be brutal. Any time the
temperature is flirting with 90 degrees and beyond, the
possibility of heat cramps is present. And as the temperature rises, heat exhaustion and heat stroke comes into
play. Staying hydrated before, during and after exercise
is essential. Wearing minimal, lightweight clothing also
helps reduce heat.
Allergies are a big reason people avoid the outdoors.
You can minimize the effects by inhaling through your
nose when you exercise and avoiding environmental
pollutants like second-hand smoke and dust. Eating
omega-3 fatty acid-laden foods (cold water fish, like
salmon) and fruits and vegetables also helps suppress
inflammatory responses.
Avoid exercising in high-crime areas, wear lightcolored clothing at night, and use caution when listening
to music, which can inhibit your awareness of your surroundings. When biking, go with the traffic flow. When
walking or running, go against the traffic.
It boils down to using common sense. Though the
environment might not be as controlled as in a gym, the
benefits of exercising outdoors far outweigh the risks.

early
intervention:
The Key to Your Child’s Mental Health.
© Advent Media Group 2007
A
s parents, it’s difficult to watch a
child going through tough times.
How long should you muddle
through on your own, supporting
your child as best you can? At what point
does concerning behavior cross the line into
scary behavior?
Questions bring more questions: “If I
take my child for mental health help, will he
be on drugs for the rest of his life? Will she
be doomed to carry a label throughout her
school years? Where will it end?
David Streett, MD, offers words of
reassurance: “Most of the kids we treat are
just briefly deviating from their normal,
healthy developmental path. If they get
help early on, chances are they’ll never need
it again.”
This father of three is a psychiatrist
specializing in the care of children and
adolescents. He serves as the Medical
Director at Pinnacle Point Behavioral
HealthCare System, Little Rock’s premier
provider of outpatient and inpatient mental
health services for children and teenagers.
Most kids, he says, will do fine with
outpatient treatment. Therapy and perhaps
medication will get them back on track.
“The key,” he says, “is early intervention.”
Pointing out that most parents wouldn’t
hesitate to seek treatment for a child’s
possibly-broken limb, Dr. Streett urges
parents to trust their instincts. “If you
think something is wrong, do something
about it,” he advises. “Call us. One of our
professionals will provide a free assessment
of your child’s behavioral health and
recommend an appropriate level of service.”
innacle Pointe offers
free, confidential
assessment and
referral services 24
hours a day, 7 days a week as a
community service. Dr. Streett
suggests that parents seek help if
a child exhibits:
• Aggression toward other
children
• An inability to cope with
feelings
• Frequent crying
• Pleas for help
• Fears of everyday things
and/or possible disasters
such as the deaths of family
members
• No interest in playing
• Isolation
• Discussions of death and
dying; statements like “I wish
I were dead.”
• Trouble sleeping
• Sexually provocative
behavior
• Self-mutilation
• Harm to animals
• Unusual weight gain or loss
• Drug or alcohol use
