The 22nd Session of the International Law Enforcement Academy is officially underway and a special reception was held at the Roswell Community Little Theater last night welcoming delegates from Hong Kong and the Philippines. 

 

Roswell Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Dorrie-Faubus McCarty greeted the students ,  followed by Mayor Dennis Kintigh who  welcomed them to “small-town America.”  “There are many people who thought ILEA should be in a major city, like Miami or Atlanta.  I would offer to you that this is a special opportunity for if you scratch any American deeply enough, you are going to find roots that go back to small towns,” he said.  He told the students they will come away from the experience with a much better understanding of what America is than they would if they attended the academy in a larger metropolitan setting. 

 

Kintigh.as a former law enforcement officer, praised all the students for being willing and able to run into situations others flee from.

 

Two of the student delegates addressed the reception attendees, primarily thanking them and the city of Roswell for their hospitality.  Margaret Kwok Wai Yu praised the hotel staff, shopkeepers and restaurant staff who stayed to serve students when they walked into a restaurant, not knowing that it was to close in five minutes.  They were not turned away.  She joked that she only had one complaint about Roswell and that was it’s food and the abundance of it, pointing out that students were not supposed to gain more than five pounds during their time in the classes.

Early voting in New Mexico runs until the end of next week.  A posting of the early voting schedule in Chaves and surrounding counties will soon be posted.

Chaves County Clerk David Kunko says there are mistakes early voters can avoid to make the process smoother.

“You know we have had a few people spoil ballots with an accidental mark in a race and then they filled in the other oval completely, while it sees that you made two marks in one race and it is going to kick it out,” he said. 

 

A little homework ahead of time will also make the process run more smoothly.  “People have been coming in and it’s been taking them a while because they haven’t had a chance to look at the amendments and bond questions.  Of course, you can take as long as you want to early vote , but if you want there are pamphlets that have been supplied to us by the Secretary of State’s office that go through and explain really deeply about the amendments and bond questions,” he added.

Don’t let Halloween fun turn truly frightening

RPD offers safety tips for trick-or-treaters

Roswell— While children are expected to have some “frightful” fun on Halloween next week, going out to trick-or-treat shouldn’t be “scary” when it comes to safety. The Roswell Police Department reminds parents, and drivers, to take steps to ensure the safety of the young ones as they head out on their quests for candy.

u Trick-or-treaters should try to make their rounds in a group if possible. All younger children, whether in a group or individually, should be accompanied by an adult or responsible older teenager.

u If it’s going to be dark at any time while trick-or-treating, equip yourself and/or your kids with flashlights. Also, avoid approaching any houses that don’t have lights on by the door to welcome trick-or-treaters.

u Remind your children that, if possible, try to move around the neighborhood on sidewalks rather than walking in the street. Everyone needs to be mindful of vehicle traffic, remembering to look at all possible directions of travel for vehicles before crossing or entering a street. No pedestrian should enter a street by walking between two parked vehicles along the curb. Drivers may not be able to see that person soon enough to safely stop, depending on how tall the parked vehicles and the person are. Halloween is on a Friday this year, which means the traffic could be extra heavy as people are out beginning their weekend activities. Make sure the kids return home at a reasonable hour.

u Drivers should be extra careful that night, remembering there will be a much greater number of young pedestrians out and about. Take it slow, especially in residential neighborhoods where trick-or-treaters are more likely to be found. Be alert for youngsters who may be distracted and not paying adequate attention to safety.

u It is best if trick-or-treaters stay away from houses they are unfamiliar with and where don’t know the residents. Try to stick to houses where trusted friends and neighbors live. Don’t go inside houses unless they are those of family or friends.

u Dress children in costumes that have bright colors and perhaps reflective pieces. Make sure masks have eyeholes that are big enough to properly see out of. Costumes should fit properly, without pieces dragging around children’s feet creating the hazard of a potential trip and fall. Avoid costumes that include any pieces or accessories that are too sharp or otherwise could be an injury risk.

u Parents should inspect all treats the children collect before any of it is eaten. If children are out on their own, instruct them not to eat any of it before they return home and an adult checks it out. Any candy or other items that are unwrapped or not in their original wrapper or appear to be homemade should be discarded unless the parent has firsthand knowledge of the source and absolutely trusts that person.

u Unfortunately, there are sex offenders in most communities, and ours is no different. Citizens can find out where convicted offenders are living near them by visiting the OffenderWatch website at www.sheriffalerts.com/cap_main.php?office=54896. That information can be used to take appropriate steps when planning the trick-or-treating route.

Parents and other family adults should take the time to make sure children are well-instructed and well-prepared for an enjoyable and safe time out trick-or-treating.
