SUMMER PROGRAMS AT THE MUSEUM The Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center will be offering a number of special programs for children and families this summer. Explorer’s Fossil Pile Enjoy the museum’s nature trail and explore the fossil pile located near the maritime forest pavilion. What looks like a big table filled with sand is actually a treasure-trove from the Aurora Fossil pits. The sand is filled with sharks teeth, fossilized shells, and other fossils dating back hundreds of years. Fun for the entire family. Available daily. Birding for FUN Have you ever wondered how birds fly? What is the smallest bird? Why birds sing? Discover the museum’s bird garden and see the “biggest bird house” on the east coast. Join the museum director for a fun-filled “up close and personal” look at some of the island’s local birds. A great introduction to bird watching and possibly the beginning of a FUN and rewarding life-long hobby. Every Friday, 2:00 PM, June 20- August 30.

Some of the stupid women said there was not really a hate crime problem, but just fear caused by some of the TV news reports that just have a political agenda. What is the story with hate crime, is it real and how much is there? Conservative Black Sister. Hi CBS. I hope I hear from you more, as this is important. We have had a national victimization study running since the early 1970s and it has trustworthy data and answers. Yes, we have hate crimes. The US Bureau of Justice Statistics tells us that nationally in 2012 we had 293,800 hate crime victimizations. With those based on religion tripling from10% in 2004 to 28% in 2012. Gender bias more than doubled from 12% to 26% during the same period. To make this worse, 60% of hate crime victimizations were not reported to police in 2012. The percentage of hate crimes involving violence increased from 78% in 2004 to 90% in 2011 and 2012. Go back to your church group and ask what the leader who started your religion said about this problem. Do you have a crime and delinquency related question? Write to Dr. Crime at professorcrime@gmail.com. Also, if your child is a “youthful offender” Dr. Crime can offer suggestions on how to work with the criminal justice system.
