What? Doesn't everyone have a reclining chair sitting on the back of the truck? We disposed of our old recliner today and our household is sad. Please join in a moment of silence over the loss of our chair. We are taking it hard. 12Jan2018

Law Officer: DEADLY FORCE DATA: WHAT DOES ‘UNARMED’ REALLY MEAN?

Law Officer: DEADLY FORCE DATA: WHAT DOES ‘UNARMED’ REALLY MEAN?
Posted by Travis Yates | Jan 8, 2018

This is a must-read for folks who wish to discuss deadly force... It is intellectually dishonest to keep blaming cops when the facts are known: http://lawofficer.com/exclusive/unarmed/

“Three years ago the Washington Post began tracking citizens killed by law enforcement.  Leading up to the collected data was a daily mantra of so called experts and politicians discussing trigger happy and racist cops.

“That has always been a lie and what the data from the Washington Post continues to do is show anyone that takes an honest look at the data that law enforcement is doing a remarkable job in the midst of violence around them.

“For the last three years, the number of citizens killed has been just about the same and that has caused some to scratch their head.  How could that be after massive reform and training measures were demanded and taken by so many agencies in an effort to reduce force? As I have pointed out in previous articles, until suspects stop attacking and committing violence against cops, force will never change and that is why the data is literally staying the same from year to year.

“Society must start approaching this issue with facts and leave emotion out.  There is someone to blame when deadly force has to be used and it is very rarely the police officer…

It is intellectually dishonest to keep blaming cops when the facts are known…”

Feb. 9, 2018 7 p.m.: FSK to Celebrate Naming of Louis V. Beard Memorial Gymnasium

Feb. 9, 2018 7 p.m.: FSK to Celebrate Naming of Louis V. Beard Memorial Gymnasium

Just released Jan. 11, 2018 Carroll County Public Schools
125 North Court Street
Westminster, Maryland 21157

For Immediate Release

Stephen H. Guthrie, Superintendent

FSK to Celebrate Naming of Louis V. Beard Memorial Gymnasium

Francis Scott Key High School will hold a ceremony to celebrate the naming of its gymnasium as the Louis V. Beard Memorial Gymnasium on Friday, February 9, 2018. The ceremony will take place at halftime during the girls varsity basketball game, which will begin at 7:00 p.m. Mr. Beard served FSK as an administrator for over 20 years.

Mr. Beard began his professional career as a teacher at the Robert Moton School in Westminster in 1955. Soon after beginning his teaching career, he was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served from 1955-1957.  He was honorably discharged and returned to teaching at Robert Moton School and was advanced to principal, where he served until 1965.

In 1965, Mr. Beard was assigned to Francis Scott Key High School where he served as assistant principal for one year until he advanced to principal in 1966.  With this appointment, he became the first African American to hold such a position in Carroll County.  He served as principal of Francis Scott Key for the next 20 years, influencing the lives of countless students and faculty in positive ways until his retirement in June 1986. 

Mr. Beard leaves a legacy of dedicated service and outstanding accomplishments as an educator, humanitarian, and civic leader.  During his tenure as principal of FSK, Mr. Beard expanded the athletic program and added an auditorium, football field, and gym.  Among his many accomplishments, he was the first African American honored by the Carroll County Jaycees with the Distinguished Service Award.  He served as past board member of numerous county agencies and service organizations, including the Y.M.C.A, Department of Social Services, Community Action Agency, Carroll County Hospital Board, and the Bowling Brook Home for Boys.

CCPS discuss possibility of banning Confederate flag items in schools

CCPS discuss possibility of banning Confederate flag items in schools


In a crowded room Wednesday night, one person after another got up asking for one thing: the banning of Confederate flags on shirts, accessories and more in Carroll County Public Schools.

Nearly a dozen spoke on the topic Wednesday, some young students, other parents in the community and some community leaders.

Mel Brennan, of Westminster, spoke as a parent of a Westminster High School freshman. His daughter, Brennan said, deals with seeing students with Confederate flag paraphernalia every day. And as a mixed-race child, he added, she experiences this as hate speech directed at her.

With these items, he said, Westminster High School doesn’t create “a safe or healthy school environment for her.”

“This is of course unacceptable,” Brennan said.

Following the numerous speakers, CCPS Superintendent Stephen Guthrie addressed the issue. The school board came to a consensus to have the CCPS’s legal team look into if CCPS can legally ban the flag on shirts and other items, possibly including those on cars in the school parking lot.

Guthrie said three years ago, he looked into banning the symbol in schools, but at the time was told legally he could not.
