Lee County Attorney Martin Placke is seen speaking with students at Lexington High School during a special Alcohol Awareness Presentation he, along with Lee County Judge Paul Fischer, Inmate Brian Ender, and Sheriff Rodney Meyer made last week. On Monday, May 17, 2010 at 11:40 AM, the junior and senior class attended a presentation for Alcohol Awareness by County Attorney Martin Placke, Sheriff Rodney Meyer, County Judge Paul Fischer, and Inmate Ender.

This program was made possible by the above mentioned individuals and was presented in an effort to stop underage drinking. The event was a huge success because during the Lexington HS Prom, we did not have any alcohol related incidents or have anyone under the influence that arrived or participated in the prom.

While at the prom and on Monday, I was fortunate enough to visit with many of the students and discussed the program with them. All were in support and stated that it opened their eyes as to what can happen if you drink when under age. I feel it was a very good program and one that is needed in every school so that we do not loose any of our most precious assets, our children, to something that we can all work to prevent.

I want to personally thank those people responsible for assembling this presentation and giving their time for this cause. I want to personally thank Sheriff Rodney Meyer for all of his support to our community and Lee County and for the great job his department does to keep everyone safe.
