Great American Smokeout – Press Release

Thursday, 09 November 2017 by

Great American Smokeout Press Release
Contact: Andre Cramblit UIHS (707) 825-4973

United Indian Health Services-NATIVE Tobacco Project*
Thursday November 16 th is the date set for this year’s Great American Smokeout (GAS). Every
year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American
Cancer Society Great American Smokeout event. Encourage someone you know to use the date
to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. By quitting – even for
1 day – smokers will be taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their
cancer risk.
About 36.5 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, and commercial tobacco use remains the
single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the world. While cigarette
smoking rates have dropped (from 42% in 1965 to 15.1% in 2015), cigar, pipe, and hookah –
other dangerous and addictive ways to smoke commercial tobacco, like –e-cigarettes, are very
much on the rise. Using commercial tobacco kills people – there’s no “safe” way to use
commercial tobacco or nicotine.
United Indian Health Services will have informational tables set up at their clinics in Smith River,
Crescent City, Arcata, Weitchpec and Fortuna. Information about commercial tobacco use and
quit kits will be available to help people participate in GAS.
Quitting smoking is not easy, but you can do it. For free telephone counseling, self-help
materials, and online help to help you quit smoking call the California Quit Line at 1-800- NO-
BUTTS (1-800- 662-8887) or go to The American Cancer Society also has a
number of resources to help support your decision to stop using commercial tobacco, just go to
*United Indian Health Services is funded by the California Tobacco Control Program for the
NATIVE Tobacco Project. Culturally appropriate smoking cessation classes are available, for
more information call (707) 825-5070 or (707) 464-5726.

Celebration of Life for Russ Crabtree

Friday, 27 October 2017 by
We have the very sad responsibility to inform you all that Russ Crabtree, the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation’s former Tribal Administrator, passed away on the afternoon of October the 18th, 2017.
Russ came to the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation in 2005 and retired in 2016, after eleven years of service to the Nation. Russ was instrumental in all of the infrastructure and development projects that the Nation has undertaken in the last eleven years. This includes the development of our Wastewater system, upgrades to our drinking water system, and numerous safety improvements to our roads and buildings. Russ helped the Nation secure a multi-million dollar TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) III grant, allowing for safety improvements to Highway 101 and making the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation one of the only Tribes in the nation that was able to secure the grant.
He further played a key role in the renovation of the Lucky 7 Casino and championed the design and construction of the Howonquet Lodge, both of which led to increased employment opportunities, revenues and services to Tribal Citizens. One of Russ’ frequent sayings was that we had to “build the road before we drive on it”. Russ’ hard work and commitment to increasing our capacity for growth has surely resulted in not only our current prosperity but also the exciting times that lie ahead of us.
Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation will be hosting a “Celebration of Life” on Sunday, November 5, 2017  at Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Hall Community Center. The hours are 12:00-2:00pm. It will be a potluck.
Our hearts grieve,
Tribal Council
