Glen Lerner Actively Supports the Pahrump “Fill the Bucket” School Supply Drive
The employees at the Pahrump, Nevada, law offices of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys raised and donated $200 to benefit the Valley Electric Association’s (VEA) annual “Fill the Bucket” school supply drive on August 4, 2012.
The bucket truck used for the annual school drive is normally used to hoist VEA line crews up to repair and maintain overhead power lines. Once a year during the school supply drive, they are used to collect much needed school supplies and lift some of the financial burdens of Pahrump school age children.
The Superintendent for the Nye County School District personally thanked the VEA, KNYE Radio and local businesses (such as Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys) for their efforts and contributions with the following released statement, “On behalf of the students, staff and administration of Nye County School District, I would like to personally thank the entire community, along with Valley Electric Association, Smith’s Food Chain and Drug, KNYE Radio and many of our businesses for their efforts and contributions to the recent ‘Fill the Bucket’ school supply drive. We have many students in need of help with back-to-school supplies who will benefit greatly…”
Food, fun, family, friends and fireworks are what help make a safe Fourth of July and a great summer holiday. However, one minute everyone could be laughing and the next stricken down by an avoidable tragedy. Here are a few suggestions to help ensure that your day ends on a happy note:
Responsible Drinking: Everyone knows that drinking and driving is not a good mix and could end up with you behind bars for a DUI charge. What they may not think of is that boating while under the influence and swimming while intoxicated is also not a good idea.
- Arrange for a designated driver to take you to and from your Fourth of July activities.
- Stay hydrated with water and take extra precautions around water and other recreational equipment/vehicles. If you don’t feel comfortable with the actions of another, leave and protect yourself from possible harm.
Water Smarts: Pool parties, water parks, lake and other recreational facilities are a great place to cool off and have some fun during hot summer days. It is unfortunate that some accidents, injuries and death could have been avoided.
- Children and adults should not swim alone or unsupervised. A drowning can occur in less than five minutes.
- Walkways can be very slippery around pools and other water recreational areas. Running or even walking can result in a slip-and-fall that could case accident injuries.
- Safety gear such as proper flotation devices should be worn by adults and children while boating. A person can get thrown over the side of a boat or experience a leg cramp while swimming and a proper safety device could save their life.
Fire and Firework Safety: Fireworks burn thousands of degree hotter than an open fire. It is important to make sure that the children and adults in your group do not take undo risks that would result in an accident or burn injury.
- Keep an eye on children around grills and open fires. Warn them about the harm they could experience if they get to close.
- Keep an eye on children and adults around fireworks. If you are allowed to have personal fireworks, make sure that no one is pointing a fire work at another person and that they are being handled properly. Also, have plenty of water nearby to extinguish fireworks and have in case of an emergency.

FDA Study Shows Potential Risk of Increased Blood Clots Linked to NuvaRing Use
After the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a study in October 2011, they reported that NuvaRing users were at a 56% higher risk of experiencing a blood clot than women that used birth control pills that have been on the market for years. The FDA noted that the increased percentage of risk associated with NuvaRing use is potentially linked to the higher dosage of estrogen that women are exposed to further increasing the risk of blood clots being dislodged and blocking blood vessels. These risks are even higher in women that are over the age of 35 and that are smokers.
Possible Symptoms of NuvaRing Users
Women and family members of women that have used the NuvaRing have reported severe alleged injuries linked to this once-a-month internal vaginal contraceptive device. Injuries that they have reported, include:

Glen Lerner Gives Back with Phoenix Attorney Cherise Warren
Recently, Glen Lerner visited several Las Vegas animal shelters to donate treats to advocate for the adoption homeless pets. The following week, his Phoenix firm Lerner & Rowe followed suit, donating dog treats and visiting with homeless pets.
Glen Lerner’s Arizona Associates spent some time playing with the animals and giving them samples of the treats. Attorney Cherise Warren had a great time with the dogs. Cherise is already a huge advocate for dogs and participates in several annual charity events for dogs.
Cherise Warren had a blast visiting with the many dogs available for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society.
Of course, the trip would not have been complete without the cookies! Here is Lerner & Rowe Network Support Technician Jose Avelino unloading approximately 900 total bags of dog treats for our furry friends at the Arizona Humane Society.
