Last Tuesday was a fun day for the kids at Melbourne Head- Start and for Sheriff Tate Lawrence and Betty Vest of the Izard County Sheriff’s Department. After a safety presentation directed at the children, each were given an opportunity to ride in the newest police car of the department. The vehicle is a converted golf cart fully equipment with a radio, blue lights, and a siren. The children were then fingerprinted by Betty Vest and photographed by Amy Love should these documents be needed in an emergency situation in the future. Left for the children was sheriff’s coloring books, pencils, and of course some candy suckers. Sheriff Lawrence said these annual visits are always fun him and his staff. The sheriff also commented that Amy Love, the head-start director, must have a special calling for what she does because she and her staff do such a great job with these prized children.
