THE BAY TOWN SUN Wednesday, August 19. 1987 5-A Safety Council supports city's SADD chapters Baytown Citizens Safety Council members agreed Monday to send a letter to both Baytown high schools expressing support for the schools' respective chapters of Students Against Driving Drunk (SADD). The council also heard a report on plans assembled by the Harris County Traffic Safety Awareness Task Force to check for intoxicated drivers during Labor Day weekend. The task force gathered recently at a meeting hosted by Exxon's Baytown Chemical Plant. Each SADD chapter is without the faculty adviser it had last year, but a new adviser ap- parently has been recruited at Robert E. Lee High School, according to council member Sgt. Dale Schimming of the Baytown Police Department. Council member Ron Starcher of Exxon's Baytown Chemical Plant suggested the council urge Ross S. Sterling High School administrators to provide an adviser for the RSS chapter. Council member Eloy Valdes of Stauffer Chemical noted the Sterling SADD chapter has strong student leaders who might seek an adviser themselves. Starcher also lamented the recent end of the Houston office of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. MADD officials at the national level accused Mary Nell Timmons, who headed the Houston office, with financial improprieties. Although the accusations later were withdrawn, the reputation of Timmons and the Houston office was damaged irreparably, according to Star- cner. "I think it's going to be to the detriment of all our lives to lose MADD," said Starcher. "We really have no avenue (without MADD) to focus on judges who are lenient on DWI convictions." Jim Bearden, executive director of the Safety Council of Greater Houston, said officials of his organization could study what might be done to restart MADD in Houston. Council member Jose Carreno of Exxon's Baytown Chemical Plant reported law enforcement agencies whose jurisdiction includes Interstate 45 between Galveston and Houston have agreed to devote at least one eight-hour period from the evening of Sept. 4 through the morning of Sept. 8 to checking for drunk drivers along 1-45. Carreno indicated the effort to identify drunk drivers will be strongest at the end of the holiday weekend. arft)s 422-0448 BARC needs continued support, director says By AMY KEMS Bay Area Rehabilitation Center is in need of continued support from the community, both through volunteers and donations, as it provides services to increasing numbers of the handicapped, BARC's executive director Linda Scott told the Baytown Lions Club Tuesday.

The staff of 30 provides an interdisciplinary program which aims to mainstream handicapped children into regular public schools. Mrs. Scott explained. The professionals also make referrals to specialists and conduct conferences with client families, she said. Volunteers do clerical work. such as making phone calls, handling mail and videotaping student evaluations. Mrs. Scott added that a 12- minute video about BARC's services, made in conjunction with Lee College last year is now available for community viewing. "Basically we're just trying to get across that there are handicapped children in our area who need our help," she said. THINK VHiitf Chapel for all your Funeral Home and Cemetery Need*.
