We've also received a lot of comments on why some Of these kids are out of control. The number one suggestion is the breakdown of the family. There is no dad there to stabilize the family, or to handle the discipline. I don't know how a single room does it. She goes to work, usually paid at minimum wage, comes home and tries to raise a family. I had one person associated with the school who said that one of the factors in juvenile "problems" has to do'with the youngster go- ing home after school t° an empty house until morn gets home from work. It still comes down to the breakdown of the family unit. You can't legislate morality. We can pass all of the anti-smoking, avti-drugs, anti-child abuse laws in the world, but if there is no sense of morality, no understanding of the differences between right and wrong, then we are in big trouble and all of the laws will not help. Dec Ewing brought in an article from the Daily Oklahoman about the folks of Waurika and how the death of Heather Rich, 16, stunned that community. Heather Rich was one of those "good kids" in Small Town, America very much like Perkins. Although her parents and law enforcement officials have not linked her apparent murder to drugs-crank to be pecific-she apparently did tell her mother that she was experi- menting. Gail Rich went from being a young lady involved in school activi- t.ics, filll of life, to "experimenting", to a horrible death in a ditch with a gunshot in the back of her head. One Waurika man told the Ohlahoman that "all he sees are tears these days whenever two or three people gather in Waurika." Some sad day, it will be Perkins shedding those tears. RC On a cheerier note-Is'this a great town, or what? Afew months ago I ran a classified ad in the PJ that said: "Wanted: Okra. Publisher's wife loves it. If you want to make Brownie Points fbr husband, Call Rick." I had local folks bringing in okra from two counties. One morning, l checked our news drop box out front, opened the door and there was a cantaloupe and a "bunch of okra." There was no note from who it came from, but whoever you are, thanks. I made a lot of Brownie Points with the better half a couple of months ago, but as with most husbands, Brownie Points go fast. So, I ran another similar ad last week: "Wanted-Okra. Wife loves okra. The wife you save may be my own." Again, to my dismay this late in the season, more okra came in, including tomatoes from Joe Russell. More Brownie Points. What worries me is that winter is coming on. You've helped me accumulate a lot of Brownie Points with the wife, but.it's going to be a long winter and I use up those points pretty quick.
