Help Preserve Parental Rights

Rep. Hoekstra Discusses Parental Rights


Parents have the responsibility, and should have the freedom, to care for, love and nurture their children. In America, parents and not the government should determine how their children are raised and how they should be educated.

Now is the time to empower parents and not policymakers. Help preserve parents' rights both now and for future generations!
Parents' Rights




Parents’ Rights Constitutional Amendment

Section 1The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.

Section 2Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.

Section 3No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.

Monday4 the Missing
~Jason Scott Adkins~
&
~Dr. Jarrett Burton~

Due to the fact that we had so many occurances in April, we decided to combine two missing persons to honor this Monday. Jason Scott Adkins would have celebrated his birthday on April 1 and Dr. Jarrett Burton has been missing since April 4, 2007. We would like to pay tribute to both of these men in hopes that someone, somewhere will see their pictures and information and come forth to their families.


Jason Scott Adkins


Jason Scott Adkins was fishing on the Ohio River with his brother on Jan. 17, 1999 when the boat he was in had engine failure. Around this same time frame, a barge passing by caused a series of large waves in the river where the men were fishing, and caused the boat to capsize. Only one of the brothers inside the boat with Jason Scott Adkins made it out of the boat and went to call for help.

As search and rescue crews arrived, they reported it appeared as if someone had exited the water in a certain area that was different from where the sole survivor would've left the wreckage. Police asked the family was it a possibility that Jason Scott Adkins could've faked his death because he owed back child support. Both his estranged wife and family do not believe Jason Scott Adkins faked his death that fateful day because he only was $200 behind on child support. There has also never been any trace of Jason Scott Adkins' body if he did indeed perish in the boating accident.

His family is turning to the public for answers in helping solve this mystery surrounding Jason's disappearance.

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts or disappearance of Jason Scott Adkins, you are asked to please contact the Huntington Police Department @

You may also contact the family directly by emailing them @ JasonScottAdkins@Yahoo.Com.

You may remain anonymous if needed. Please help us find out what happened to Jason Scott Adkins that fateful day.
