CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 15 - August 21, 1997 - 21 Chief school officers submit NAA(;P position to districts Cape Henlopen School District Superintendent Suellen Skeen, Ed.D., presented a position paper from the Delaware State Confer- ence Branches of the National As- sociation for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to the school board during its July 10, 1997 meeting. Skeen said she submitted the paper to the board on behalf of the school chiefs or- ganization, who received and dis- cussed it at a recent meeting. The NAACP did not request action from either the school chiefs or their school boards. The paper, she said, was for informational purposes only, and the chief school officers adopted a motion "that we certainly support the ef- forts for all children." The paper reads as follows: "Whatever school that students of color attend, in the state of said, 'Mom, get me out of here,'" said Jones, as her eyes Welled with tears. Sipple denied any abusive behavior. "I have nothing to say," he said, noting that court records support that there is no reason for his child not to have placement in his home. "Obviously there was nothing to that allegation." 'q'he man is six one. He weighs 280 pounds. He's a huge man," said Jones. When Jake told her about the threats to the dog and his fear of his father, after learning he would be moving back in with him, Jones said she decided she no longer could trust the system. "I sat in that vast marble space [of U.S. District Court in Wilm- ington] and thought if there's a hell, mine would be waiting in a courtroom for a verdict," said Jones. It was one of Jake's com- ments, however, that cinched her decision to quit trying to work within the system, and take Jake and leave the area. Eagle Continued from page 20 Court order stating he would re- side with Sipple. Psychiatrist Borer, said Giovengo, said that al- though Sipple might not discuss the case openly with Jake, "There are psychological ways to punish people in a more covert fashion." Jones said Borer agreed that "it was not a good place [Sipple's residence] for him to go." Giovengo said the problem with the case is that issues became clouded. "This is not a child cus- tody case," he said. He said the USFWS's primary concern is that there is no tampering with a wit- ness before a trial. Jones said she has long fought the court because she believes Sipple is too threatening and abu- sive to her son.

"He said, 'Mom, they haven't listened before. Why do you think they're going to listen now?'" said Jones. "They'll find me eventual- ly - I know that. I'm in contempt of court; I know that," said Jones. If not government officials, she said, then Sipple, a former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agent would find her. "I tried to pack a whole life in about a half hour - and leave a whole life in a half hour," she said. "No one knows where I'm going." Jones is a registered nurse who just completed her first year of graduate school. Her nursing license would allow anyone seek- ing her to find her. No arrest war- rant is yet on record for Jones.
