TEFLON: CONSEQUENCES ROLL RIGHT OFF
From a young age, some people knew that they were better than others and relished the idea that they would not need to follow previous procedures. When she was elected to a popular spot in the senior class, unfortunately someone of color would be in the picture with her. No problem, have separate photos taken and placed on different pages in the yearbook.
She was given the position of the dance team director for one of the high schools, then she carried on with the same name that has been around for decades. That is understandable; however, when that school no longer existed due to consolidation, then the drill team name was to be changed to include both schools. Girls from both high schools would be on the same drill team and the colors of the uniforms would be changed to match the consolidated school. Style of the uniforms (dingle bells on matador hats remained) basically stayed the same and the original, albeit obsolete name remained on board, on line, on cars and on everyone's lips. VICTORIADORES.....Past, present, future? DDDR?
The Raider Bells drill team had a history, and they were classy enough to go along with not insisting that RAIDER BELLS were maintained. Class, you ask? Yeah, it takes true class to move on, follow the rules and build new memories. When the drill team director at Memorial thumbed her nose at authority figures concerning the name VICTORIADORES, this added another layer of her non-stick back.
MTV wanted to come and make a film about the drill team and this director so much wanted it that she stepped way out of line. She didn't even receive a slap on the wrist for all the rules she broke. She didn't lose her job, her authority or prestige in the town. People rallied around her and supported her love for her girls and all her dedication for each and everyone.
Costs to have a girl on the drill team were sometimes too much for families and if they complained, the wrath from others was laced with disgust at the lowly who actually struggled financially. When the team needed money, BULLS, BEER and KICKING were enlisted. Was anyone keeping up with the amount of funds that were made, because when the two schools split, half the money should have gone to EAST HIGH SCHOOL? All the money that parents raised last year should have been split, since the team was split into two schools.
Here were find the latest incident of rules, regulation and blow back sliding off of the TEFLON back of the drill team leader. It has been reported that she has been arrested for embezzlement of funds. Isn't that interesting! No report on the blotter section in the Victoria Advocate. The only comment concerning this has been deleted from the Advocate's website.
I will not post on The Victoria Advocate, because the brain-impaired TSTORM will have my account deleted and he is so not worth it. He will not hear anything that is based on facts, just the rah-rah that keeps everyone away from the facts that we need boots to wallow through.
When I saw Chris Cobbler in Hasting renting a movie and getting a breverage today, I was so tempted to ask him about it, but I didn't feel like having to do the Heimlich or listen to him stammer around the truth.
