Sad News

Sadly I inform you that Betty Empson Hanlon’s beloved husband, Charlie Hanlon, passed away yesterday, March 20th at 3:44 at Grand Strand Medical Center.  At this time I am only aware that a funeral mass has been scheduled for Monday, March 26 at St. Brendan’s Church in Shallotte at 10:00 am.  A reception at the Pink Palace will be held following the funeral services.  I thought her Sea Trail neighbors and friends may want to know this information.  Thanks,  Paula Jones

H&S Committee Upcoming Program: Defending Yourself and Family At Home: New Laws – New Rules

Health and Safety Program:  Defending Yourself and Family At Home: New Laws – New Rules is planned for April 18, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM  at the Pink Palace *.  This one hour program is presented by Steve Westfall, who is retired from federal law enforcement (U.S. Secret Service and Deputy U.S. Marshall) and has taught various law courses at the Secret Service Training Academy.  This class highlights basic use of force law in self-defense as it relates to you and your family should there be a forced entry/ intrusion into your home.

In 2011 the North Carolina Legislature revised many statues, including “Defense of Home”. The new laws definitely favor the homeowner, but there are “rules” regarding defending you and your family at home. The laws point out specific use of force limitations and exclusions. What if you didn’t know or follow the “rules”?  There could be serious legal consequences.  Being well informed can help you make the correct choices if an incident should occur in your home.  It could help keep you safe and out of jail.

* For planning purposes and room set-up, please contact Steve at spwestfall@atmc.net if you are planning to attend this presentation.
