A free community presentation on suicide prevention and the importance of active listening skills will be held at 7 p.m. in the Dillon Middle School gym. Featured speaker is “Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge” Kevin Briggs, who as a California Highway Patrol officer persuaded more than 200 individuals not to jump to their deaths from the California bridge. In his 17 years patrolling the bridge, Briggs encountered hundreds of troubled people who had lost hope and were ready to end their lives by suicide.
