    First, you and your family be very, very careful-

    Rather than keeping this local, perhaps you want to document everything, getting signed statements (notorized is best), make copies of all-several copies, putting one in a safe deposit somewhere out of town, and fed ex to your state attorney general. Oten things like this cannot be handled on the local level because the locals are too afraid to get involved. The tough thing is that because this is such a small town, everyone knows everything and there may be more unpleasantness once this person gets wind of your gathering statements, etc. Of course, if this is racially motivated, it most likely WOULDN"T be happening if the town weren't so small, certainly not to the extent you are describing. With the new federal hate-crime law, this is not something that anyone, let alone a law enforcement official, would want to be caught doing.

    copies of all information/documentation/statements, etc., to the following, all sent either return receipt requested so you have proof that it got there, who actually physically took custody of it, etc.:

    Congressional Representitives
    State Senators
    State Attorney General
    Attorney General of the United States
    President Obama
    Vice President Obama
    ACLU State Headquarters

    By copying the information to everyone, and putting it on your cover letter that you have cc'd (carbon copied)you might have a better shot of SOMEONE in a position to do something actually getting involved. By putting the cc on the bottom of the cover letter to your packet of information/documentation, you are politely letting each person know that you have let others know about the issue. That way-SOMEONE might just say to him/herself "RATS! I better check this out because if I don't and Senator so and so, or someone from the State attny generals (etc. fill in each name here), DOES call me about this, s/he will know that i know about it and if i haven't done anything...well, you can get my drift. Even if getting it taken care of is just an act of a politician covering his/her own behind- at least it gets it taken care of.

    be careful- unfortunately, if this person is in a position to harm you, and yours, it might be well advised to move away from there. Somewhere where this person would have no valid reason to be, other than to be seeking you out. While it is not right, or fair, that you would have to do that, that might be the wisest course of action. In addition to starting an investigation with all of the above.
