Top issues in your commissioner's district that need to be addressed by the Fiscal Court Many roads in our dis- trict have been neglected for quite some time.

Your top priority as commissioneL if you are elected All of us has an annoying pothole close to our home that we would like to see fixed.

The safety of our children should be of the utmost priority. While we cannot control Mother Nature, it is unfair for some children to miss school be- cause of certain parts of roads being unsafe for bus- es to traveli have a safe journey. Trash needs to be cleaned up, and all road signs need to be fixed. 3. Your top priority as commissioner, if you are elected I have a desire to make some needed changes in this community.

Participants marched from Owingsville Elementary School to the courthouse, where they heard from Crossroads Elementary School Guidance Counselor Beth Rogers; Special Investigator for Child-Based Services Brittany Davis; and student performers A Song and a Smile from Owingsville Elementary School and the Treble Makers from Bath County Middle School. Davis told the crowd in 2013 in Bath County there were 329 calls to investigate allegations of child abuse, and 165 were substantiated cases. Across the state, there were 56,113 calls, with 23,951 cases substantiated, and 9 fatalities and 27 near-fatalities in abuse. Davis said that the support of the community is needed for investigations, and she and students from Owingsville Elementary and Crossroads Elementary gave sug- gestions for ideas for preventions, including telling stressed parents to ask for help and to encourage volunteering for abuse prevention groups. "It shouldn't hurt to be a child," they said. Following the program, there was a release of blue balloons in the "pocket" behind the courthouse.
