Ritchie: We can do more to protect our children
To the Editor:
The Caylee Anthony case sent shockwaves through the nation, as millions of parents wondered, among other things, how a mother could fail to report the death of her child.
It’s no secret that every second is precious when a child disappears. The first 48 hours can often mean the difference whether a child is found and whether they live or die.
That’s why I am cosponsoring the “Protect Our Children Act” to create tougher penalties for failure to report a missing child.

This smallmouth bass was recently caught by Deb Matott from DeKalb Jct. while fishing on Black Lake. "I finally caught one after hours of watching my husband bring them in, my redemption, caught the biggest of the day," she said.
