To the Editor,

We attended the seatbelt presentation that was held at the Kingsland High School on April 17th. We would like to thank the Kingsland Seatbelt Committee for planning the presentation. The speakers along with the presentation of a car simulator made it very clear what takes place when you dont buckle up.

Vehicles were stopped that morning to see if students were wearing their seatbelts. We were proud of the persons who were buckled up. We were DISAPPOINTED in the number of names that were read who were not buckled up. To those persons and others that dont buckle up, do you think it wont happen to you? Do you think just because you are driving or riding to school or work that you don't need to buckle up? Do you think just driving a short distance from home youll be safe by not buckling up? If so, THINK AGAIN.

Our grandson, Dustin Atwood, died last August as the result of a car accident. He wasnt buckled up. The accident happened around 11:00 a.m., a short distance from home. IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU! Please dont put your family through the grief that we have experienced in the loss of our loved one.

We have appreciated the support from the Kingsland staff and students. Thanks to Mr. Holzer for conducting the memory circle at the football field after the seatbelt presentation. There were many wonderful memories shared about Dustin.

Remember - PLEASE BUCKLE UP!

To the Editor,

So after 12 long days this guy gets his freedom. What a joke! A fraction of the dollar amount of the loss to the victims of the fire and hes out. Judge Fabian did you ever consider the pain, anguish and heartache of these peop .....
