Did Guardian Angel Save Teen? Katie Lent Saved By Mysterious Priest Aft...

Miracles are REAL! God is present among us, even in the most dire & scary situations. This 19 year old girl was hit by a drunk driver and trapped in her car. Rescuers were doing everything they knew possible to get her out, but it wasn't working. Then, all of a sudden, a man appeared with a bottle of anointing oil. He asked to pray & anoint the trapped girl. Then, he was gone. No one saw him again and no one knew where he came from. The best news: The girl made it out alive & after surgery, is recovering well.

Praise God for his life-giving power! Watch the ABC News story here:

Update (June 16): the "mystery man" was found later to be a priest. However, this does not debunk the miracle. For instance, the prophets who are real people, like Moses, performed miracles. GOD works through people. Therefore, just because an actual priest showed up, prayed, and the girl was then rescued does NOT make this account less of a miracle.

Ignition Interlock Proposed For All D.W.I. Offenders

Dramatic video shows chase, crash with 1,000th repeat drunk driver

Repeat DUI offender involved in crash that killed family

More than 80% of people rely on their own vehicle for transportation...


In this modern world, driving is an essential part of our lives. More than 80% of people rely on their own vehicle for transportation to and from work, school, errands and more. This means that most of the population spends a fair amount of their time in a motor vehicle. Part of being a safe driver is abstaining from consuming alcohol before you are going to operate a motor vehicle. 

While accidents sometimes cannot be avoided, accidents involving drunk driving often can. Alarmingly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that in 2009, about one-third of all automobile crashes involved an alcohol-impaired driver. In looking at data collected for all automobile accidents in 2009, it was recorded that more than two million people were treated for injuries after a motor vehicle accident. In short, drinking and driving is extremely dangerous and is a public safety issue. That’s why states have continued to crack down on those convicted of this serious criminal offense.

The consumption of alcohol, even in relatively small amounts, increases the risk of being involved in a crash for motorists and pedestrians. Not only does alcohol impair processes critical to safe road use, such as vision and reaction time, it is also associated with impaired judgement and so is often linked to other high-risk road use behaviours such as speeding or not using seat-belts. In many countries, research indicates that considerable proportions of drivers, motorcyclists and pedestrians have alcohol in their blood in sufficient concentrations to impair their road use skills. While the profile of drink-drivers differs somewhat between regions, there are a number of factors that increase the risk of crashes involving drinking and driving.

ISLD--Idaho Alcohol PSA



I am so impressed that the Idaho State Liquor Division made this video
in alliance Boise Police Department to enforce the legal drinking age in Idaho.
This message is so important to the youth of Idaho and this message needs to
be promoted more across the State of Idaho.  

Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence and are two and a half times more likely to become abusers of alcohol than those who begin drinking at age 21.  In 2009, 436 youth 12- 20 years old were admitted for alcohol treatment in Idaho, accounting for 17% of all treatment admissions for alcohol abuse in the state.

Astonishing Facts and Statistics

Alcohol Consumption by Youth in Idaho Underage drinking is widespread in Idaho. Approximately 59,000 underage customers in Idaho drink each year. In 2009, Idaho students in grades 9-12 reported: 

• 62.5% had at least one drink of alcohol on one or more days during their life. 

• 19.2% had their first drink of alcohol, other than a few sips, before age 13. 

• 34.2% had at least one drink of alcohol on one or more occasion in the past 30 days. 

• 22.3% had five or more drinks of alcohol in a row (binge drinking) in the past 30 days. 

• 3.5% had at least one drink of alcohol on school property in the past 30 days. 

In 2009, underage customers consumed 14.4% of all alcohol sold in Idaho, totaling $109 million in sales (in 2010 dollars). These sales provided profits of $53 million to the alcohol industry. Ranking states based on the percentage of alcohol consumed underage, with 1 the highest, Idaho ranked number 34. This percentage is affected by both adult and youth drinking levels. Annual sales of alcohol consumed by youth in Idaho averaged $1,844 per underage customer. Underage customers were heavier consumers than adults. They drank an average of 4.7 drinks per day; in contrast, legal customers consumed only 1.8.

Harm Associated with Underage Drinking in Idaho 

Underage drinking in Idaho leads to substantial harm due to traffic crashes, violent crime, property crime, unintentional injury, and risky sex. 

• During 2009, an estimated 8 traffic fatalities and 369 nonfatal traffic injuries were attributable to driving after underage drinking. 

• In 2009, an estimated 3 homicides; 3,600 nonfatal violent crimes such as rape, robbery and assault; and 6,300 property crimes including burglary, larceny, and car theft were attributable to underage drinking. 

• In 2007, an estimated 3 alcohol involved fatal burns, drownings, and suicides were attributable to underage drinking.

• In 2009, an estimated 217 teen pregnancies and 5,892 teens having risky sex were attributable to underage drinking. For comparison with other states, in US rather than state prices, the harm from underage drinking per youth in Idaho averages $907. 

Heather Orchard, Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving

Mrs. Idaho Intl. 2015


    This will be the first Mrs. Idaho pageant I will be competing for, and I am so glad to be competing for the International Pageant System.  The International Pageant System promotes today's married women, their accomplishments, and commitment to family and marriage.

    I represented the International Pageant System in 2011 as Miss Idaho International, and had the experience of a life time!  While, one of the most rewarding experiences I had as a Licensed Professional was becoming affiliated with the American Cancer Society and the Look Good… Feel Better Program, which helps improve the self-image, appearance, and quality of life of people undergoing cancer treatment by teaching beauty techniques to help them cope with the appearance related consequences of cancer treatment and restore their appearance and self-confidence through active learning in group, one-on-one, or self help situations.  Through LGFB I was able to use my gift to let a women’s inner beauty shine outward.

“I believe there is a vision for my life greater than my imagination can hold.  
That dream has brought me to be a light, a hope & understanding to share some sense of illumination that maybe reflects peoples lives and touches it.” (Oprah Winfrey)

    This message still holds true to me, as I aspire to be more than just known as a “public figure” not only to hold the title and crown of Mrs Idaho International, but to serve as a voice and inspiration to all whom I meet along my journey.  To leave a legacy behind of truly making an impact in the lives of other’s through my service.

    I can not wait to step foot on the Idaho International stage on March 7, 2015, because I am in a new chapter of my life.  Now I not only have the support of my loving parents who have watched me compete for a numerous amount of years, but I also have my own family, with my two beautiful children and the most amazing husband to be there to share this wonderful experience with.  Being chosen as Mrs Idaho International is more than a pretty crown and sash, it is an honor, a duty and a service that is meant to make a difference, and that difference has an impact.  It is the empowerment of women around the world representing the International Pageant System, using their voices to create awareness, educate, and inspire people to create a movement.  This is what I want to do in Idaho with my platform working with the MADD Organization.  In high school I was impacted by the message of "Drunk Driving," when my best friend, Michelle Mack, had lost her older brother to a drunk driving accident.  I remember they brought his vehicle and placed it in the front of our high school campus to show the results of a drunk driving accident.  It was something at a young age I will never forget, and that was how I first got involved with MADD.  Then on July 25, 3013 I was hit head on by a drunk driver.  My story as a victim and survivor of a drunk driving accident I hope will create that same impact towards the youth of Idaho.  Right after my accident I was reached out to by Channel 6 News and numerous newspaper publications to get my story.  Ever since I have been affiliated with the Boise Police DUI and Night STEP team to stop drunk driving.  I am an advocate for MADD as a victim and survivor on their National Website and in the State of Idaho.  I have so many great opportunities in the works for my campaign with MADD to create awareness and prevention of drunk driving.  One of the most exciting opportunities I have is in creating a documentary with the Boise Police DUI and Night STEP Team, as well as the MADD Organization, and voicing the stories of the victims and survivors.  My hope is that this documentary will catch the attention on a National level to be made publicized.  I want it to be used as an informational and  educational tool in high schools and in State probational facilities that are working with DUI offenders.  This documentary will create awareness to everyone who is out there driving on our public roads, by keeping everyone safe and making the right decision to never drink and drive.  Please support me and my family by pledging to never drink and drive, and to follow us on our campaign to end drunk driving.  "Driving is not the KEY to living."  (Heather Mallary-Orchard)

Saving lives with ignition interlocks





What is an Intoxalock ignition interlock device?

An Intoxalock ignition interlock device is a state-of-the-art breath alcohol monitoring device that integrates a fuel cell based breathalyzer with your vehicle’s ignition system. When a breath sample is submitted, Intoxalock tests the sample for the presence of alcohol. Using a fuel cell technology developed by Intoxalock for the ignition interlock industry, the device will display the breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) of the sample on the LED screen.* If the BrAC is below the legal standard for your state, the vehicle will start. If a violation is detected, the vehicle will not start until a safe sample has been provided.

Ignition interlocks

“A wealth of research continues to show that drivers compelled to install ignition interlock device or IIDs in their vehicles tend to have far fewer alcohol-related crashes, than drivers who have had their license suspended after being convicted of a DUI offense. Not only that, as a study in contrasts, IIDs are more effective than other methods at reducing re-arrest among convicted drunk drivers and keeping them off the road.”
Source: John B. Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Manager of Public and Government Affairs, 2014
All 50 states have some sort of ignition interlock law. Fifteen states—Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and Washington—have mandatory ignition interlock provisions for all offenses. Illinois and Colorado’s laws are not mandatory for a first conviction, but there are strong incentives to install an interlock device [ignition interlock device, IID] on the first conviction.

Alcohol-impaired driving killed more than 10,000 people in the United States [in 2009], making driving while intoxicated (DWI) one of our Nation’s most important highway safety issues. Increasingly, states are using ignition interlocks [ignition interlock devices, IID] as a key part of their overall strategy to reduce the incidence of DWI and to save lives.
Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2010
There is clear evidence that the ignition interlock device (IID), installed in the offender’s vehicle, is substantially more effective than license suspension in deterring DUI recidivism. The overall reduction in recidivism realized by ignition interlock device (IID) use is enhanced by increased duration of installation – a sanction effect not observed for license suspension.
Source: NIAAA Final Report, 2008
Over 90% of ignition interlock [car breathalyzer] users reported that the device has been successful to very successful in preventing them from drinking and driving; over 90% also reported that the ignition interlock has been effective or somewhat effective in changing their drinking habits.

21 DAYS IN SUPPORT OF 21



21 DAYS IN SUPPORT OF 21


POWERTALK 21 is MADD’s annual national effort to call on parents to talk to their teens about not drinking alcohol until age 21.

This year, every day from April 1-21, MADD will join communities across the nation to help parents and caregivers start potentially lifesaving conversations about alcohol with their teens through the Power of Parents program, nationally sponsored by Nationwide Insurance.

Research says that parents are the number one influencer of their child’s decisions about alcohol. Your teens are listening. What are you saying?

Share our Infographic: Based on MADD’s survey of teens, they say they are 80% less likely to drink alcohol underage when their parent give clear no use messages. View Infographic to see what parent message works best, related results and life-alterning consequences. Then share it with other parents!

I am so excited to be apart of this movement!  See how you can get involved @

History of Drinking and Driving

As long as there have been motorized vehicles, there have been intoxicated drivers. Initially, without the high-tech equipment we have today it was difficult to prove someone was drunk. The determination was made solely by the arresting officer. It would be necessary that they take several things into careful consideration including how erratic the driving was and the driver’s behavior. Field Sobriety Tests (FST) also aided law enforcement. Imposing specific tests on suspects helped improve reliability and provide some stability to officer’s decisions. 

  • In 1910, New York was the first state to adopt a law against drinking and driving, with California and other states soon following. These early DUI laws simply history of drunk driving laws in the u.s.prohibited driving while intoxicated, but there was so set definition of what level of intoxication qualified as drunk driving.
  • In 1936, after the repeal of prohibition in 1933, Dr. Harger, an Indiana University professor of toxicology and biochemistry, patented the Drunkometer. The device was balloon-like and people breathed into it to determine intoxication. The color of the air, when mixed with a chemical solution, determined the amount of intoxication.
  • In 1938, thanks to research by the American Medical Association and the National Safety Council, 0.15 percent became the first commonly-used legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
  • In 1953, Robert Borkenstein, a former police captain and university professor, invented the Breathalyzer. This machine used chemical oxidation and photometry to determine alcohol concentration. All a person would have to do is blow into the machine and it would measure the alcohol vapors in their breath. This would show the level of alcohol in their blood.  The Breathalyzer was easier to use and more accurate than the Drunkometer, which made it the perfect test for police officers to use when determining whether someone had too much to drink.
  • In 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, or MADD, was founded by Candy Lightner after her 13-year-old daughter was killed on her way home from a school carnival by a drunk driver. The driver had three previous DUI convictions and was out on bail from a hit-and-run arrest two days earlier. When MADD was founded in 1980, more than 21,000 people were killed in drunk driving crashes each year.  Lightner and MADD helped to change the public’s attitudes about drunk driving. The group pushed for tougher legislation for those convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. MADD also successfully pushed to have the legal drinking age raised.
  • In 1984, The National Minimum Drinking Age Act required states to pass individual legislation raising the drinking age to 21.
  • In 1998, as part of TEA-21, a new Federal incentive grant was created to encourage states to adopt a .08 BAC illegal per se level.
  • In 2000, Congress adopted .08 BAC as the national illegal limit for impaired driving.

Boise Police DUI STEP Team


In 2013 Boise Police Officers arrested 1,064 Drivers for driving under the influence. 
BPDs Night STEP team is responsible for most of the city's DUI arrests. STEP stands for Selected Traffic Enforcement Program. Night STEP officers have specialized training in recognition, arrest, and prosecution of drunk drivers.
About Drunk Driving:
In Idaho, a blood alcohol content of .08 or above is considered impaired, and legally drunk.   According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, all 50 states have now passed .08 BAC laws for impaired driving.   An NHTSA study shows nearly 97% of Americans view drinking and driving by others as a threat to their families and themselves. The study found Americans rank drunk driving ahead of healthcare, poverty, the environment and gun control as an important social issue. The majority of Americans support increased enforcement efforts, according to the NHTSA.
National statistics show 40% of those killed in auto accident are involved in alcohol related crashes.
Boise Police Recommend You:
  • Plan ahead! If you plan to drink, choose a designated driver or plan to take a taxicab, a driving service to get home.
  • Plan to spend the night where the activity is held. 
  • Serve non-alcoholic beverages at your gathering.
  • Report impaired drivers immediately to your local law enforcement -  call 911.
  • Always buckle up. Seat belts are your best defense against an impaired driver
