Couple charged with child abuse & contributing to delinquency of a minor


cpdOn April 9, 2009, Jennifer Seadler and Jeremy Seadler were both charged with contributing to delinquency and child abuse and neglect.   Jennifer Seadler’s bond was set at $6,000 while Jeremy Seadler’s  bond was set at $2,000.

An investigation by Detective Demone Chestnut revealed that Jennifer and Jeremy Seadler provided alcoholic beverages to a 16 year old female juvenile, a former Northeast High School student, while playing a card game.  Jennifer Seadler was at one time the math teacher of the juvenile; this supports the fact that both adults knew the age of the juvenile.  The investigation uncovered there were  two other adults that the juvenile had never met who were also playing the game.  The juvenile did not play well during the game, therefore she had to take shots of Ciroc Vodka.  Shortly after consuming the alcohol, the juvenile became very sick and vomited.  The juvenile was sent home without being provided any medical attention. «Read the rest of this article»

A Veteran’s Salute: RIP Ed Freeman!


The following is a salute to a fallen veteran of the Vietnam War. In honoring his past exploits and his passing, honor is given at once to all who have worn, are now wearing, and will wear the uniforms of US Military Services.  Rest now, Brother. Day is done.

usflag-lady-liberty.JPGYou’re an 19-year-old kid. You’re critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, November 14, 1965,  LZ X-ray, Vietnam.  Your infantry unit is outnumbered eight to one, and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 or 200 yards away that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is half-way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day. «Read the rest of this article»
