PAGE 10-A HOGANSVIIJ HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, Nov. 13, 2003 'Radio Show' Is Friday The Sons of Lafayette Male Choir, under the direction of Loren Pinkerman, and guest performers Anne Duraski, Ed Biggs and Kathy Nash will present an evening of family entertainment Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. in the new Troup High School Auditorium. "The Radio Show" will feature the Sons of Lafayette singing cowboy songs including "Cool Water", "The Old Chisholm Trail" and "Riders In The Sky" and a set of 1960s tunes ("I Get Around", "Fun, Fun, Fun" and "Earth Angel") which will have the audience singing and dancing in the aisles. In keeping with the cowboy theme in the first act, guests Anne Duraski, Ed Biggs and Kathy Nash will present a comic "horse opera" entitled "Sweet Baby From Pike", which is based on the American Folk Song of the same name. Biggs and Nash also will entertain with their rendition of the famous Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald duet "Indian Love Song" while Duraski and Pinkerman also will sing solos. A smaller ensemble from Sons of Lafayette will perform other pieces, and a Radio Host will handle the radio com- mercials and commentary. The audience is invited to get in the spirit and join in the fun by dressing in either cowboy or 60s clothing. State of Georgia, Troup County To the honorable Allen B. Keeble, Judge of Superior Court, Coweta Judicial Circuit: We, the members of the Troup County Grand Jury drawn and sworn for the November 2003 Term, respectfully make the fol- lowing presentments: We wish to express our appreciation to District Attorney Peter John Skandalakis and all who assisted him in the prepara- tion and presentation of the cases brought before us for action. We commend the District Attorney and his staff for their professional- ism and attention to detail. Their presentations were invaluable in making our decisions. We also wish to thank Mr. Marion Carson and Mr. Donald Neese, our bailiffs, for their assistance. We com- mend law enforcement per- sonnel, who came before us, whose dedication to duty deserves our support, encouragement, and sincere thanks. We are impressed with their demonstrated dili- gence and competence. This Grand Jury would also like to extend our grati- tude to the Honorable Judge Allen B. Keeble for his serv- ice and dedication to the judi- cial process. This Grand Jury was pre- sented an indictment for con- sideration which involved the disciplining of a student by a school administrator. The student was disciplined in accordance with the adopted policies and procedures of the Troup County School Board. After deliberating the evidence, this Grand Jury returned a No Bill as to that particular indictment. As a result of this case, this Grand Jury requested that someone associated with the Troup County School Board appear before this body to answer their ques- tions. We wish to thank Associate Superintendent, Ed Smith, for appearing before us to discuss the adopt- ed disciplinary policies of the Board and what action is being taken to ensure that an incident similar to the case submitted does not occur again. After discussing the case with Mr. Smith and consider- ing all the evidence before us, this Grand Jury makes the following recommendations to the elected members of the Troup County School Board and the Superintendent: We concur with the deci- sion to suspend corporal pun- ishment as a form of disci- plining students until further information is obtained by officials to determine if this matter is valid and/or an acceptable practice. If the elected members of the School Board do adopt corporal punishment as an acceptable method of last resort discipline, we urge them to do away with the "standard paddle" and take into consideration the differ- ent sizes and ages of all stu- dents in our system. This body is mindful that the elected members of the School Board are the ones responsible for educating our children and ensuring the safety of all our children in school. We are hopeful that the Board will review other school district disciplinary policies and consider all viable options before making a final decision regarding this matter. We further urge parents to become involved in this matter and make their feel- ings known to the elected school board members con- cerning the policy of corpo- ral punishment in the schools. We also heard testimony from law enforcement con- cerning certain child molestation cases. We urge all of our agencies to work closely together on these cases and further urge Department of Family and Children Services and Juvenile Court to examine their procedures/policies involving the placement of children into protective cus- tody. Board of Equalization Pursuant to the charge of the Court, this Grand Jury appoints Ms. Sibyl Single to the Board of Equalization, Regular Member First Board, to serve a two-year term beginning January 1, 2004, and expiring December 21, 2005. Mr. Lamar McKeen to the Board of Equalization, Regular Member - First Board, and to serve a three- year term beginning January 1, 2004, and expiring December 31, 2006. Mr. Stephen King to the Board of Equalization, Alternate Member, to serve a three-year term beginning January 1, 2004, and expir- ing December 31, 2006.
