8 - CAPE GAZE'IWE, Friday, February 3 .February 9, 1995 Officials needed in King Parade My husband and I have been part-time residents of Rehoboth Beach for over 40 years, and homeowners since 1972. We felt therefore considerable interest, kinship and, at times, concern re- garding the community and its cit- izens. On a recent Saturday, Jan. 14, we watched the Martin Luther King Jr. parade on Rehoboth Av- enue. We welcomed the coverage by the Cape Gazette in advance of the events which were scheduled in observance of the birth date of one of America's great men. We were, however, dismayed and saddened by the lack of visi- ble support and participation on the part of the host city, Rehohoth Beach. Clemon Jordan, co-chair of the King Day observances, was quoted as saying "By no means is this just for Blacks; it is for every- body. The more people we can get involved, the more problems we can solve and the more we can accomplish." We hope that future parades will include the Mayor and Com- missioners of Rehoboth Beach; the Chamber of Commerce, the Homeowners Association, Re- hoboth churches, the YMCA and other relevant civic groups; that the sign outside Convention Hall will pay tribute to Dr. King; and that many citizeus of all races and ages will be on hand to applaud, as we did, the spirited groups demonstrating their commitment to a dream which must not die. Doris M. Leader York, Pa.

But big block letters proclaiming WIN- TER STORM WATCH stood out as plainly on the weather map as the beauty mark above the red- waxed smile of our waitress. We plowed through buckwheat pancakes, steak and eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits, hash browns, and lots of stiff, black coffee to stoke our stoves and sharpen our morous, but nonetheless warming innocence, the men's years en- abled them to understand - almost intuitively - that I was fight. I heartily recommend hiking and camping in our nation's na- tional forests. They cover vast territories of undeveloped country and feature beautiful trails. Rules in the national forests are few. Visitors are expected to use com- mon sense and not abuse the re- sources. No one's looking over your Blue Ridge Parkway. At Ellsworth's suggestion, we car- ded in camp saws and did some trail maintenance along the way - primarily cutting large, fallen trees from across the trail. The trail followed a stream that emerged from scrubby rocks near the ridge and grew into a water- fall-strewn Mine Bank Creek as gravity pulled more water into its course. We encountered some heavy weather but we were prepared. Cape students sentenced for restroom beating By Kerry Kester The three boys charged with felonious assault against a student and two teachers at Cape Hen- lopen High School pleaded guilty before Judge Battle Robinson on Monday, Jan. 30. Robinson sen- tenced Stanford Harpe, 17, to an indeterminate time at Ferris ,School for Boys in Wilmington. Edward Clark, 16, and Aaron Collins, 16, were sentenced to Ferris, suspended for two years. All three boys were told they would have to pay fair shares of restitution to the student's family to cover the medical costs in- curred. On Friday, Dec. 9, Delaware State Police officers arrested Harpe for assaulting and injuring a Cape Henlopen High School student and two teachers on Dec. 8. According to police reports, Harpe, Clark and Collins alleged- ly "punched and kicked" a 14 year old male, "causing facial bone fractures". The victim was treated and released from Beebe Medical Center for his injuries. Collins was also facing a third degree as- sault charge in an unrelated case. Harpe was originally charged with second degree assault, two counts of third degree assault, sec- ond degree conspiracy and disor- derly conduct. Clark and Collins were arrested for second degree assault and second degree con- spiracy by state troopers on Mon- day, Dec. 12 and Tuesday, Dec. 13 respectively. Attorneys for Clark and Collins, made plea bargains that reduced the boys' charges in exchange for their agreement to testify against Harpe, whom attorneys said was responsible for most of the actual beating of the Cape student. Their testimony was not needed, howev- er, because shortly before the boys appeared before Robinson, Harpe pleaded guilty. Although Harpe had requested that Robinson grant him a contin- uance because he appeared with no attorney, Robinson denied the request. Christine Tunnell, deputy attorney general, said in court that the state opposed any continuance because Harpe had declined the services of a court appointed at- torney that was offered to him at his December arraignment. Additionally, Robinson read portions of a report submitted by Harpe's probation officer. Robin- son said that Harpe had been put on probation from drug-related charges in July but had failed to meet the conditions of that proba- tion. The report, she said, indicat' ed that his whereabouts had been unknown for a time and he hadn't met with his counselor. He had, however, performed the commu- nity service. "This isn't the first time you've been in this court," said Robinson to Harpe. "We've gtt a lot of pages here, and a lot of offenses." Following the sentencing, Robin- son warned Harpe that he would have to cooperate with his after- care worker. She also told him that if he had another offense within a year, he would have to spend at least six months in prison as a consequence of the Mandato- ry Commitment Act. Following Harpe's sentencing, Clark and Collins appeared to- gether before Robinson. In addi- tion to the rest of their sentence, she told them they were forbidden to have contact with the victim or Harpe, pay a fair portion of resti- tution to the victim, and perform 50 hours of community service. They are to maintain good behav- ior, get personal counseling and undergo evaluations for substance abuse, including following any recommendations that the evalua- tion would report. "It was fair all the way around," said Rosemary Beauregard, Collins, attorney. State followed policy in reporting student violence By Kerry Kester Officials in the Cape Henlopen School District believe the De- cember 8 student assault in a Cape Henlopen High School bathroom, where a student was seriously in- jured, could have been avoided. According to Bob. Smith, direc- tor of secondary education, former Attorney General Charles Oberle and Judge Vincent Poppiti set a policy in motion last year that re- quired the attorney general's of- fice to notify schools when stu- dents were arrested and charged for serious offenses. that we were getting that informa- tion." Superintendent Suellen said, "The system is breaking down." According to Skeen, law enforce- ment officials failed to notify the district that serious charges were brought against Stanford Harpe, 17, last summer. The charges, which were drug related, were se- rious enough that the district should have been notified, Skeen said. State Prosecutor Stephen Walther, who wrote the state poli- cy, said the state acted correctly in mental .faculties. "Men," I said, shoulder. You're on your own.
