It’s 12:15 a.m. Friday and I’m just gettingaround to my column. Not the best scenariobut it happens.Being a journalist/editor encompasses a lotof territory and many decisions are made asphones are ringing, people are asking ques-tions and others are waiting for articles toplace on pages — deadlines, deadlines, dead-lines. Some turn out good, some OK and someare regretted. None are made maliciously orwith the intent to harm.We also follow the AP Stylebook whenwriting articles. It is the “how-to” guide formost journalists.One thing that has come to my attention:the average person doesn’t know nor probablycares about journalistic etiquette. Rules thatseem simple and make perfect sense to us andare followed because they are rules may notseem correct or logical to others. Trust me,there are even some that don’t make sense tous, either.For instance, when a dateline — the firstthing you read in a story and tells you wherethe event happened — is in Ohio, the state isremoved. It is “supposed” to be understoodthe event happened in the state of the personreading the story; therefore, you don’t need totell them where they are. They are supposedto know.When relating places of interest outside thestate, the state is included in the first referenceand dropped in subsequent mentions. Forexample: “John Doe was raised in Greenville,N.M.” The following references to his home-town are just Greenville, even though there isa Greenville in nearly every state. Some wouldsay mentioning the state again wouldn’t hurt.True. But it takes up space and space is pre-cious in a newspaper. The more space yousave, the more room you have for more news.That’s what it’s all about.Another rule is: time, date, place: “TheKiwanis will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at theEagles Lodge.” Forever and ever, amen.There are rules for just about everything.The months of March, April, May, June andJuly are never abbreviated. Numbers onethrough nine are spelled out and 10-infinityare actual numbers. The first reference to anordained minister is “the Rev. So and So”and subsequent references are just “Rev. Soand So.”I won’t bore you with any more APStylebook rules and the like. Heck, I don’teven want to talk about them. When I havea question, I pull it out and check myself.There’s one on every desk in the newsroom.We also have the luxury of making someof our own policies, standards and practices.They just need to be consistent so we can tellpeople “this is the way we do it” and it’s thatway every time.What I guess I want you to know is there isa method to our madness. Even though some-times it is madness.Editor’s note:

They explained to themthat they could no longer sellthese types of substances.A short time later, taskforce officers began receivingcomplaints that multiple loca-tions had continued sellingthese now illegal substances,even though they had beenadvised they could no lon-ger do this. After receivingthese complaints, task forcemembers decided to initiatean undercover operation todetermine if the citizen com-plaints were valid.By utilizing undercoverofficers and confidentialinformants, task force mem-bers went to multiple loca-tions and purchased substanc-es that appeared to be the nowillegal bath salts and syntheticmarijuana. The task force sentthe substances to the statecrime lab for thorough analy-sis and the results came backthe substances were in factthe same ones that had beenoutlawed.After learning this infor-mation, task force officerscoordinated another round of undercover buys into thesesame locations. They pur-chased additional amounts of these substances.On Friday, task force offi-cers secured and served searchwarrants against three loca-tions within Allen County.They are as follows:1. Brothers House of Glasslocated at 1273 N. Cole St.in Lima2. The 420 Clinic locatedat 1000 N. Cole St. in Lima3.

by Immigration and CustomsEnforcement but the resultswere negative. She was thenturned over to the HarrisCounty jail and booked onthe theft charge.The county sheriff’soffice said it ran her throughthe available databases anddid the interviews neces-sary to establish her iden-tity and immigration statusin the country, with nega-tive results. A sheriff’s officeemployee recommended thatan immigration detainer beput on her, and upon herrelease from jail she wasturned over to ICE.U.S. immigration officialsinsist they followed proce-dure and found nothing toindicate that the girl wasn’ta Colombian woman livingillegally in the country.An ICE official said theteen claimed to be Cortezthroughout the criminal pro-ceedings in Houston and theensuing deportation process,in which an immigration judge ultimately ordered herback to Colombia.Standard procedure beforeany deportation is to coordi-nate with the other country inorder to establish that personis from there, the ICE officialsaid.The ICE official, speakingon condition of anonymitydue to not being authorizedto discuss additional detailsof the case, said the teenagerwas interviewed by a repre-sentative from the Colombianconsulate and that coun-try’s government issued hera travel document to enterColombia.Jakadrien was issuedtravel documents at therequest of U.S. officialsusing information theyprovided, the ColombianMinistry of Foreign Affairssaid. Colombian officials areinvestigating what kind of verification was conducted byits Houston consulate to issuethe temporary passport.The girl was givenColombian citizenship uponarriving in that country, theICE official said.According to theColombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the girl wasenrolled in the country’s“Welcome Home” programafter she arrived there. Shewas given shelter, psycho-logical assistance and a job ata call center, a statement fromthe agency said.“If she looked like anadult, and she told them shewas a 21-year-old Colombiancitizen, and she didn’t showup in their databases, thiswas inevitable,” said AlbertArmendariz, an immigrationattorney from El Paso.Jakadrien’s family saysthey have no idea why sheended up in Colombia.Johnisa Turner said the girl isa U.S. citizen who was bornin Dallas and was not fluentin Spanish. She said neithershe nor the teen’s father hadties to Colombia. Jakadrien’sgrandmother, Lorene Turner,called the deportation a “bigmistake somebody made.”“She looks like a kid, sheacts like a kid. How couldthey think she wasn’t a kid?”Lorene Turner asked onThursday.Lorene Turner, a Dallashairstylist, said she spent a lotof time on the Internet tryingto track down Jakadrien.Ultimately, the girl wasfound in Bogota by the DallasPolice Department with helpfrom Colombian and U.S.officials.Dallas Police detectiveC’mon (pronounced Simone)Wingo, the detective in chargeof the case, said she wascontacted in August by thegirl’s grandmother, who saidJakadrien had posted “kindof disturbing” messages on aFacebook account where shegoes by yet another name.Wingo said the girl waslocated in early Novemberthrough her use of a com-puter to log into Facebook.Relatives were then put intocontact with the U.S. embas-sy in Bogota to provide pic-tures and documents to proveJakadrien’s identity.Colombian officials saidwhen the government discov-ered she was a U.S. citizenand a minor, it put her underthe care of a welfare pro-gram.
