Losing People

Today was a day of sad news. First I learned that a young woman who caused an accident involving a motorcyclist was cited with making an illegal left turn in front of an oncoming vehicle with a $115 fine. A motorcyclist lost his life! And the only thing the law can do is ask her to pay a $115 fine? That has me quite upset.

Next I read that a man was killed in a car accident in Perry County. That person was Theodore (Ted) Shenk Jr. Ted and I went to school together. I believe we knew each other since 1st grade. Ted was always into sports and was very active. When we were in high school we developed other friends and didn’t talk much. I haven’t seen Ted since high school and to hear this news makes me sad. I wish there was a way to keep in touch with all of those people we knew so long ago. You will be missed Ted.

    I read that story… that’s insane! I’m sure you heard the story of our friend Don and his car accident. Women turned an illegal left in front of him in Harrisburg, totaled his Explorer. He was injured, but ok. His facebook status the other week… “She was Convicted on all 3 charges, plus the Harrisburg Police added 3 other charges and she was convicted on a total of 6 charges (IT DOES NOT PAY TO DRINK AND DRIVE) Please don’t !!!!!!”

    So, obviously this women was drunk, and destroyed Don’s car and took him off work for a few weeks and was convicted on 6 charges. That girl in that Penn Live story does the exact same thing… only not drunk, just a crappy new driver and barely gets a slap on the wrist. Doesn’t seem right. Something doesn’t add up.

    Either way… it’s total BS.
