Farmville Police Chief Curtis Davis was guest speaker at the Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter NSDAR meeting in January. During his presentation, “Old and New Laws on the Books,” Davis spoke about how laws mirror the times and culture. He further explained that religion, culture, technology and actual incidents bring about calls for changes in the laws. The most dangerous laws are those that are based on emotion. He warned that in each new law, the public relinquishes some of its freedom. “Laws can protect you,” he said, “but you have to protect yourselves.” Pictured are, from left, Jenny Bobko, second vice regent, Davis, Regent Lynne Pridgen and Dottie Fahrner, corresponding secretary and program leader.
