My staff and I recognize the struggles victims of crime face. in their daily activities and realize our duty to hold people ac- countable for their actions may not always seem to be the right decision." April 18 through April 24 is National Crime Victims' Rights Week. Tingle said, "My staff and I would like to pay tribute to those who have allowed us to become involved in their lives, acknowledge the relationships we have built and recognize the large population whom we have never met. My office is committed to carrying out the slogan of National Crime Victims' Rights Week; Fairness, Dignity, Respect. We believe victims of crime should be treated with fairness, dignity and respect, given the opportunity to be involved with the criminal justice process and not be treated as an afterthought. Year after year, I have seen victims of crimes interact with my office through the criminal justice process; some have stayed in contact, while others have not been for- gotten." Tingle asked that we all 'take time during this week to remember those who have been affected by others' actions and simply be the one to'ask, to listen, or to be- lieve in someone whom you feel has been victimized.'

Laura Greiner Greiners Are New Owners Of The Daily Grind Coffee Shop By Sally Huntoon Laura and Bryan Greiner are the new owners of The Daily Grind, 810 North Ave. The couple took over the coffee shop the first of April. Laura has been working with former owner, Katie Warfield, to familiarize herself with the operation and with the customers. She is excited about the new busi- ness venture and is anxious to continue serving area residents with their daily "coffee" needs, which include the popular Turtle and Nutty Warrior. As summer ap- proaches, Laura will add hot-weather drinks like rootbeer floats, shakes and lemonade. In addition to the various selections of coffee, Greiner says she will continue to offer fresh-baked goodies.
