year-old daughter was abused during
a recent paddling at Double Springs
Elementary School has determined
no wrongdoing by the school.
On Thursday, April 4, the mother
of the student came to the Double
Springs Police Department wanting
to file a report concerning her child
receiving a paddling Wednesday,
April 3, at the elementary school,
Police Chief Kim Miller noted.
“She claimed her child had bruis-
ing on her butt from the paddling
and said her child was not to be
given corporal punishment unless
she was notified,” Chief Miller said.
A summary on a copy of the po-
lice report indicated that the mother
stated “there was severe bruising in
the buttock area of her daughter. Her
daughter told her she got in trouble
and got a paddling.”
A copy of the report also noted
she went to the school and con-
fronted the principal and the school
employee that did the paddling.
The employee who did the pad-
dling informed the mother “he did
not paddle her that hard.”
However, the mother was not sat-
isfied with this response from the
school and went to the Department
of Human Resources which referred

HALEYVILLE - Congress is in the heat of the
battle on gun control. This week President Barack
Obama flew 11 parents of the children killed in
the Sandy Hook massacre to Washington D.C. on
Air Force One to lobby Congress for stricter gun
control legislation. Twenty children and six teach-
ers were killed at the elementary school on Dec.
14, 2012.
Republican Senator Pat Toomey, of Pennsyl-
vania, and Senator Joe Manchin, a West Va., De-
mocrat, both whom have an A rating with the
National Rifle Association, were reported to have
worked out a deal to expand background checks
to include gun shows and the internet. They are
said to be key senators on the issue. If the deal
does pass the Senate, it will have to go to the
House for consideration.
The following is a statement released by the
National Rifle Association, out of Fairfax, Va.,
"Expanding background checks at gun shows will
not prevent the next shooting, will not solve vio-
lent crime and will not keep our kids safe in
