A 13 year old juvenile, who is a student at DeKalb County Middle School, has been charged with a delinquent act of making threats toward a Middle School teacher. A juvenile petition was taken against the teen on Monday, February 26.

According to Sheriff Patrick Ray, the juvenile made the threat on social media to another person about pointing a weapon at a teacher earlier this month.

“Due to Friday’s school threat, the school staff at DeKalb Middle School spoke to students and advised them everyone was ok, but if they ever heard a rumor or knew about someone who was going to do harm to the school, to tell someone,” said Sheriff Ray.

“A student told school staff about the threat toward the teacher today (Monday),” he said.

The school staff then advised the School Resource Officer, who then contacted Sheriff Ray.

“I contacted Detectives with my department who started an investigation. During interviews and after obtaining social media messages, Detectives were able to determine the student did make the threats,” Sheriff Ray continued.

According to Sheriff Ray this incident is totally unrelated to the unfounded rumors of social media threats made against the high school which surfaced late last week.
The juvenile is currently being held in the Putnam County Juvenile Detention Center.

Sheriff Ray says “I am very proud of the student who reported this incident to the school staff. It took a lot of courage for them to tell someone. I, along with my Department, are committed to ensuring that all students and school staff are safe. Any threats of this kind will not be tolerated. I ask all parents to talk with their children about these kinds of threats and to monitor their child’s social media conversations. If a threat is discovered, please report it to law enforcement immediately. I also encourage all students to talk with the School Resource Officer or school staff about any threat they hear,” he concluded.

After losing their home and all belongings in an August fire, tragedy has struck the Nathan and Kimberly Hale family again.

The 5th wheel camper of the Hale’s who live on Lower Helton Road, Alexandria was destroyed by fire Thursday night, February 22. The family had been living in the camper since the loss of their three bedroom home at 5093 Lower Helton Road in August. The first fire occurred while the Hale’s were away to attend a church service in Carthage.

The Hale’s are asking for help from the community to get them back on their feet.

“On Thursday night February 22, a fire started close to the electrical panel in the camper. My husband, myself and our dogs got out and we managed to save most of our medications and my insulin; however, when Nathan tried to go back in to get his wallet and important papers, the roof started falling in on him. In his wallet was every bit of money we had put away that our church helped raise in hopes of being able to buy a vehicle, $600 cash. My husband is disabled and we’ve been waiting for 2 years for a determination for his disability claim,” said Mrs. Hale.

“I have set up a gofundme link ( We also have a checking account at Wilson Bank and Trust in my husband’s name, Robert Nathan Hale, and donations can also be sent through PayPal using my email address” said Mrs. Hale.

“Thank you in advance for your help. God bless you.” she concluded.
