TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO The Press-Dispatch Thursday, Jan. 22, 1998 Pike County Sheriff's Deputy Brad Jenkins was on routine patrol in Arthur on SR61 Sunday about 2:45 a.m. when he noticed the Ger- ald Fraize Art Gallery was on fire. Jenkins said the front doors of the gallery were covered with oil and it appeared someone had set it afire. He said he was able to stomp out a small fire in front of the doors of the business but the side of the build- ing was also on fire. A firefighter's quick thinking also helped prevent the fire from doing much damage. South Patoka firefighter Jason Bottoms grabbed a bucket and scooped up water from puddles in front of the gallery and threw the water on the burning wall. Medic Carol Mitchell said Bottoms' actions helped slow the progress of the fire until the fire department arrived. Paul Lake, the new Executive Di- rector of the Pike County Economic Development and Growth Council began his duties on Monday.

Athletic Council WHS 1946 The athletic council included members of all classes from freshmen to seniors. In the first row are Charles Finch, Donald Colemen, Joseph Kays, and Dale Bottom. In the second row are Clarence Buec- hele (principal), David Heuring, Guy Mullins, Bob Ashby, and Marvin Hopkins. zation, as follows: "Confiden- tial" ("damage to the national security"); "Secret" ("serious damage to the national secu- rity"); and "Top Secret" ("ex- ceptionally grave damage to the national security"). "Sensitive Compartmented Information" describes clas- sified information that is de- rived from or relates to sen- sitive intelligence sources, methods, or analytical pro- cesses. Additionally, some "Top Se- cret" information is addition- ally categorized as "Special Access Programs," a catego- ry that limits access to a small group of top military and intel- ligence officials. Classified information can reveal sources and methods that we utilize to gather intelli- gence. It can reveal human as- sets that cooperate with us in other countries, which can im- peril their lives. It can reveal sensitive information about our technological capabili- ties or our plans to counter the activities of groups and coun- tries that may mean us harm. Countries may be cooper- ating with us but, for political reasons, they would not want others to know that they are cooperating with us. Disclo- sure of the fact that they are cooperating with us against common adversaries and of the extent of that cooperation may cause them to cease co- operation and may disincen- tivize others from cooperat- ing with us. And there is no question that presidents and vice pres- idents have access on a reg- ular basis to the "crown jew- els" of classified information. What are the penalties for mishandling classified infor- mation? Various federal laws, includ- ing the Espionage Act, make it a criminal offense to remove, divulge, or destroy classified information either intentional- ly or "through the exercise of gross negligence." Violations can result in imprisonment for up to 10 years plus hefty fines, but if someone is con- victed of espionage, the poten- tial penalty is death. Several public officials, in- cluding retired Army general and former CIA Director Da- vid Petraeus and former Clin- ton National Security Advis- er Sandy Berger, have pled guilty to charges of unlawful- ly removing classified docu- ments. However, more recent- ly, then-FBI Director James Comey gave Hillary Clin- ton a pass (a decision which should have been made by the Justice Department, not the FBI) even though he stated at the time that Clinton and her State Department colleagues "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensi- tive, highly classified infor- mation." Comey found it was "possi- ble that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton's personal email account," but still he concluded that "no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."
