At 2:44 p.m., approximately 7 hours later, a dispatcher with King George Sheriff’s Office called 911 to request aid and transportation to the emergency room for the sophomore who was later diagnosed to be suffering from two fractures to his bottom jawbone and one fracture to his top jawbone.

Bobby starts classes at new school

Editor’s note: Linda Davis has served as coach for the King George Little League Challengers and is coordinator for King George Special Olympics. Her years of experience working with children in the special education program gives her a unique perspective on how the program is serving children with special needs. This is not a traditional news story — this is one woman’s perspective of one child’s situation.
On Jan. 24 an IEP meeting was held at the central office to determine the appropriate placement for Bobby. The IEP team determined because of the regression Bobby had suffered and the inability of the division to offer a remedy, it would be best to send him to a place that was better equipped to educate him. On Monday Feb. 7 Bobby headed for ERI in Fredericksburg. ERI is a private day school for kids with special needs. They specialize in intense instruction and transition. The division is required to pay all costs for this accommodation for as long as it is deemed necessary or until Bobby reaches 22

Long time law enforcement officer to challenge Dempsey

King George Sheriff Steve Dempsey had hardly been sworn in, gotten the new stripes sown on his uniform and comfortable in “Moose” Dobson’s chair when he found he is going to have a challenger for his seat in the November elections.

Long-time law enforcement officer Freddie Hottle, recently a part-time deputy in the King George Sheriff’s office, announced today he is going to challenge Dempsey for the coveted seat of Sheriff of King George County.  “I’m running,” he said.
He gave the news to Dempsey last Friday, just three weeks after Dempsey took his new position.
Hottle said Dempsey brought him into his office, asked him if he intended to run and “I told him yes,” said Hottle. “Dempsey told me that was a ‘slap in his face’ and that if I intended to run, he would fire me. I asked him to put that in writing, but he wouldn’t.”
Dempsey told The Journal that he did not fire Hottle but accepted his resignation on Monday, Jan. 24.
As of last Friday, Hottle joined the ranks of the unemployed and plans to spend his time on a door to door campaign for the Sheriff’s seat.

Nine state complaints filed for Bobby

Editor’s note: Linda Davis has served as coach for the King George Little League Challengers and is coordinator for King George Special Olympics. Her years of experience working with children in the special education program gives her a unique perspective on how the program is serving children with special needs. This is not a traditional news story — this is one woman’s perspective of one child’s situation.
This week, Jenn, Bobby’s mom, filed the first wave of complaints with the VA Department of Education. It might be the only way we are going to get an effective individual education plan (IEP) for Bobby. We attended a third IEP meeting that lasted for 2 hours and accomplished very little. The complaints are a last ditch effort to get the division to comply with state and federal laws regarding Bobby’s right to a free and appropriate education.
