Set­ting the record straight

The Advance of Bucks County - - FRONT PAGE -

The Ad­vance of Bucks County printed er­ro­neous in­for­ma­tion in last week’s pa­per re­gard­ing Coun­cil Rock School Board mem­ber Jerold Grupp. On a Sun­day dur­ing the sum­mer break Mr. Grupp was tour­ing ren­o­va­tions at Hol­land El­e­men­tary School, when a hand­gun he owned was seen by two em­ploy­ees on school prop­erty and was re­ported to the ad­min­is­tra­tion. The build­ing was closed to the pub­lic, and no chil­dren were present. Mr. Grupp was never asked to sur­ren­der the gun and po­lice were not called to the school as was re­ported by this pa­per. The ad­min­is­tra­tion no­ti­fied Northamp­ton Town­ship Po­lice per dis­trict pol­icy and the mat­ter was re­ferred to Bucks County Dis­trict At­tor­ney David Heck­ler. Ac­cord­ing to the dis­trict at­tor­ney, Mr. Grupp was com­ing straight from a fir­ing range, school was not in ses­sion at the time and he had a li­cense to carry a con­cealed hand­gun and did noth­ing wrong. The Ad­vance of Bucks County re­grets the er­ror and apol­o­gizes to Mr. Grupp for any prob­lems this may have caused.
