Attendance Highest Ever at Drug Talk...
I received an e-mail from Anita Hillman who was a major organizer, along with Officer Ray Borden, of the recent parents' drug awareness program held at the Germantown High School and presented by Cpl. Dan Delmore.
She advised that 131 parents were able to attend and that most wanted to learn even more by the time the program was over. This is a most critical area for parents and children. It is gratifying to see such a large attendance to take advantage of the knowledge of our law enforcement folks.
A similar program will likely be announced soon to be held in April, and we'll try to determine if that will be the same as this one or if new/additional data will be included. Maybe this one will see 150 parents or even more!
Headlines That Could Stand Some Editorial Oversight...
"Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert Says" Really?
"Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers" I'll bet even Chief Hoell would think this a bit excessive.
"If Strike Isn't Settled Soon, It May Last Awhile" I suspect that is the case.
"Kids Make Nutritious Snacks" I'm sure I'd prefer peanuts or chips or something.
"Juvenile Court to Try Shooting Defendant" Seems like a fair and impartial trial might be better.
