My name is Vernon Hilyer aka: Brandon’s Dad. I share a true life story about my son’s fight with alcohol and the effects his choices had on everyone who knew and loved him. My son Brandon was an outstanding all-American kid that was full of life, but alcohol impaired his control and eventually robbed him of life. Now I serve a "Life Sentence" due to his drinking and driving. My Life Sentence is not one behind bars but a life full of sadness and emptiness. I share many things about his drinking world, both in high school and in college that most can relate to. My true-life story has had a life changing effect on many people.

At Seven Springs speaking at the N & D Symposium tomorrow morning. 9 years ago I never thought I would be walking into a facility like this to present my program on DUI prevention. My world changed on Sept 10, 2008 and I have been changing others lives since that night when my son Brandon died because of his bad choice to Drink and Drive.

I have checked in at Seven Springs Resort this afternoon to mingle and share my prevention efforts with many people from across the state that are here from state and county prisons, Alternative Education schools, and youth detention centers. Tomorrow morning as they divide off and go to different programs I hope to have a full room to hear my program at 10:45. I have talked with many people this evening that said how powerful the Brandon's Dad program is and they were glad they chose to attend it over the past 6 years I have been here at the Neglect and Delinquent Youth Symposium. Hoping tomorrow to make some good contacts and reach one more person that needs to hear why they should Never Drink and Drive.

Great News ! Many times I have shared the Drug Take Back program. Many times I have been asked "How can I get rid of used needles?" (from people that use insulin or other medicines on a daily basis)
No one ever had a place to get rid of them. When asking where they can get rid of them I was told just put them in a pop bottle or a tin can and put them in the garbage.
There is now a place to get rid of them Thanks to Klingensmith's Drug Store. Stores in New Bethlehem, Rimersburg, Ford City, and West Kittanning can now grind and dispose of used needles to keep them from being reused or spreading disease.
Please spread the word.
