Oneill: No, not against teachers and those with college degrees. I have a college degree also. I am just venting on stupid criminals, whether they have a college degree or not.

Well done Judge Lane and Prosecutor Erb for your enlightened and intelligent handling of local kids choosing drugs over life, family, work, God and country. Prayers to all the families who endured this trauma and disrespect, especially those who kept their doors open with more vigilant expectations and firmer love to redirect Frontier grads. Sorry for other families who rewarded bad behavior before any progress toward fixing the problem had been made?!? Hope these young adults can, with this lesson, help to prevent at least one repeat screw up like theirs in this and the next generation. Get back to church! You have much to be Thankful for this coming Thursday!

for once i have to agree 100% with Walton and Fred

this young lady made a terrible mistake. she admits it and seems determined to do the right thing now and get fixed. yes she should not be around kids and should be terminated but only after due process.

why is everyone so quick to judge? why is everyone so cruel ? who amoung us is perfect? we all have our problems, our sins and things in our past that shame us all...every one of us.

Show a little compassion for this young lady. Pray for her recovery and ability to become a productive and law abiding citizen again.

If Christ can forgive each of us for our many shortcomings we should try try to do the same for others.

She may have a college degree or two, but she is still a stupid criminal.

All Congress members should be drug tested. And, maybe then they will see that this war they have been waging is not working.

I knew this young woman when she was in high school, and I have to say it broke my heart. She always seemed much more intelligent than this. Hopefully she will right herself and contribute to society again in some meaningful manner. Its incredibly unfortunate, but then again, we all reap what we sow in the end. It is just that some crops come back to us more quickly than others.

Fired for being charged of a crime?

Little thing called presumption of innocence. She wasn't convicted until yesterday. Resigning prevented her from getting additional pay and benefits that she no longer deserved due to her actions. Her resignation also went back to the day before she was arrested, so she forfeited anything she got after that date. Hopefully it was also a first step in getting her life back together. Stupid drugs.
