Everything you need to know about dealing with the police by Maryann Miller( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gr 8 Up Police provides an excellent and realistic overview of situations teens might face. Specific areas of discussion look at how law enforcement operates, traffic tickets, police harassment, ethics, police and community cooperative projects, being searched, teens' rights, dialing 911, and dealing with confrontations. Parker discusses life in a shelter and the associated problems: coping with embarrassment, shame, anger, fear, and frustration; ways to take personal control; getting an education, developing talents/abilities, and learning from experience; and getting help from others. The final chapter addresses changes in society that would facilitate improvements in the homelessness problem. In both books, information is presented in a clear, straightforward manner with fictionalized incidents/experiences used to illustrate points of emphasis. These titles are supportive, quick reads and are especially useful for filling the hi/lo vocabulary gap. Several black-and-white and full-color posed photographs accentuate textual issues. Good companions to Paul Almonte and Theresa Desmond's Police, People and Power (Crestwood, 1992), Karen O'Connor's Homeless Children (Lucent, 1989), and Lois Stavsky's The Place I Call Home (Shapolsky, 1990).

Winnsboro by Maryann Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From its meager beginnings as "The Crossroads," Winnsboro has become a bustling small town situated in the heart of the beautiful Piney Woods of East Texas. Settled in 1854, when the railroad came in 1876, Winnsboro became a major shipping center for goods going west to the frontier. At one time, the area was one of the top producers of fruit for Bama Pies; one local grower referred to his business as "My Slice of the Pie." From 1932 to 1934, Winnsboro was a destination stop for Bonnie and Clyde when they traveled from central Texas to Louisiana. Because of their friendship with a local resident, the couple promised never to rob anyone in Winnsboro. Home to the Bowery, the town had as many as eight saloons from 1893 to 1910, and people still talk about the shoot-out at Massel's Saloon. With a thriving community arts center as well as galleries and venues for live theater and music, Winnsboro has been named a State of Texas Cultural Arts District
