I don't want to fight with any fool over things like that....have to pick and choose my battles...but my guess is my hair or age....peace d

Boy's hair length at issue for school in Texas
TUESDAY, JULY 15, 2008
Filed Under: Education

A mother and father in Texas say their 5-year-old son should be allowed to keep his hair long despite a school policy against it.
Adriel Arocha is Apache from his father's side, according to the family. "His dad is of Native American descent, so we have chosen to raise him with certain beliefs in place, one of them being that his hair is sacred and we don't cut it," mother Michelle Betenbaugh told The Houston Chronicle.
Officials in the rural Needville school district aren't buying it. They have not produced any information except they are Native American Indians," said superintendent Curtis Rhodes.
Betenbaugh said she will go to court if necessary to allow Adriel to keep his long hair.

Hey, I was a teenager during the 60s when women AND men had long hair.  Long hair on a boy?  Big deal.

Personally, I can't see wasting the taxpayers' money going to court over making a 5-year-old cut his hair.  His father's Native American and they want to keep the kid's hair long.  Guess what?  Let them do it. 

The real issue is that some control freak wants to force somene else to back down.  There are times when an offense or a crime is worth going to court over, but whether someone cuts his son's hair or not is hardly an offense or a crime.  There are better ways to spend taxpayer dollars than going to court over something like that.

Friday has finally fallen upon us, which means another issue of the Cherokee Link.  We'd like to welcome all of our new readers, and welcome back our regulars.  It's time to break in the new running shoes I bought last year, which should help with all the running around I'll need to do before the Holiday.  

Speaking of, it's time to dust off your running shoes and build up endurance for the Holiday 5K run, one of the many events in which you can participate during the 56th Annual Cherokee National Holiday!   More exciting events can be found at:
http://holiday.cherokee.org  

Eva Gilbert, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and an original enrollee of the Dawes Rolls, recently celebrated her 106th birthday.  Congratulations Eva!  See the full story at: http://www.cherokee.org/PressRoom/2622/Story.aspx

Call to Action: Please take time to check out http://www.meetthecherokee.org    and http://www.cherokeenationfacts.org   to learn more about Cherokee citizenship. On these sites you will find facts and updates to all things related to the citizenship status of non-Indians. You can also let your voices be heard from visiting the http://www.cherokeevoice.com/   and these sites by telling Congress to oppose HR 2824 and not to punish the Nation with amendments that would cut funding to vital services such as health care. You can also add webstickers http://capwiz.com/cherokee/remotecontent/    to your personal websites to encourage individuals to visit the websites. Please encourage your family and friends to also check out these sites.
