supposed to be unarmed.

Those who guard the prisoner
during the trial wear empty holsters.

Their sidearms are kept locked away
beneath the bench.

On the opposite side of the
courtroom from the accused, at least
one other deputy keeps on eye on
spectators. He is ALWAYS armed.

Sheriff McMillan insists his
deputies NEED to have firearms in
court, because of the unpredictability
of human emotions in a criminal trial.

The school system's budget for
next year does not include the roughly
800-thousand dollars it takes to keep
the academy running.

A decision that has some parents
concerned.

SMALL, THEY GET THAT EXTRA ATTENTION
THAT YOU CAN'T GET WITH A CLASS FULL OF
35 TO 40 STUDENTS.

School officials say that's the
problem.

The smaller the student to
teacher ratio is, the more it costs to
run the school.

They say the Blue Ridge program
itself will stay intact and say they
are developing a plan to help the
students adjust to a larger school.

Last Month It was last month that we told you
about Kenneth Butch Mowles like Owl - a
paraplegic since a child- who had his
computer stolen.

Mowles doctors tell News 7- they've
received donations totaling 48-hundred
dollars- enough to pay what Mowles
owed on the stolen computer and to buy
him a new one.

Mowles- who can not use use his arms
or legs.. calls the computer his

lifeline and said he was heartbroken
when it was stolen.
