Deputy Jenkins discovered a parked, un-warmed car (35 degrees) with an un- covered, scantily clad baby and its lethargic mother in the car. Through her

investigative skills, law enforcement training, and motherly instincts, she determined that something was just not right. Deputy Jenkins called for medical assistance for the mother and infant. Both were transported to the Emergency Room for treatment. The child was then transported to Levine Hospital because the infant suffered hypothermia and was so weak, she was unable to even cry. Doctors' reports indicate they believe that if Deputy Jenkins had not taken such appropriate actions, the two-week-old baby would have died. Sheriff Reid acknowledged Deputy Jenkins for her job-well- done and outstanding performance in the line of duty. Deputy Jenkins said she is motivated to make Sheriff Reid and herself proud in her performance and she will continue to strive toward that. Chairman Streater thanked Deputy Jenkins on doing a great job, and the audience stood as they clapped and showed their appreciation and respect for Deputy Jenkins. Public Addresses :

Subject: Appointment of Anson County Review Officers Presenter: None Required Request: Make a motion to...approve Diane Timmons and Ashlie Jones Tolliver as Anson County Review Officers. Background: The tax office has been and continues to be the review office for reviewing and signing-off (approving) plats and maps being recorded in the Register of Deeds. The review officer uses G.S. 37-40(.2) for determining if a plat or map has all the required information for recording. This information is vital to the tax office due to the tax office being responsible for mapping each parcel or track of land in GIS and for ownership for taxing. I am naming currently approved review officers Larry Newton and Judy DeAngelo and adding two new officers Diane Timmons and Ashlie Jones Tolliver so that staff can expeditious review all maps plats for recording.
