Wow another masterpiece by Pierre Tristam. I'm one of those "elderly" people he targeted as a recipient of the public dole and yes I am also one who complains about younger people receiving free handouts from the taxpayers. However, there is one giant difference; we elderly as you put it earned our public dole (social security and medicare) because we have paid into it our entire lives.
Those young people starting out who expect the rest of us to support their lifestyle and their family choices without working for them I have a problem with.
I doubt Mr. Tristam reads any rebuttals to his columns, but after all you can't expect someone who doesn't care if his children's teachers get stoned before school as he stated in one of his previous columns to be able to comprehend a rebuttal.
The attitude adjustment you are looking for in your columns, take a long look in the mirror the reflection you see is the problem.
Thanks Moton Elementary
As the school year comes to an end every year at this time I want to write this letter but this year I am actually completing the task at hand.
This is a sad year for us as both our boys are now out of Moton Elementary School and I just want to thank all the teachers, administrators and staff for all the great years we have had at Moton.
What a great school this is. I know there are lots of good schools in Hernando but Moton is truly a family school and we will miss everyone. This school has some of the best teachers I have ever met and they truly love their job and it shows in our kids!
I can't say enough about the teachers we have had, but there are some special ones like Ms. Roush who is a miracle worker and we are forever grateful. Mrs. Merritt you have always been there for us from second grade to the extra tutoring, thank you. Ms. Lashley you set the ground rules and what good rules they are. Ms. Badala, what can I say you demanded respect and got it teaching the difference between passing and excelling.
As a parent you couldn't pay me enough to be a teacher in this world today so from my family to the Moton family we will miss all the love and caring you have given our boys over the years it has not gone unnoticed!
And let's not forget Debby Vermette who was a big part of Moton. Mark, teachers and all the staff we will miss you all. Continued success you have a hard job but you truly do a wonderful job. Go Moton
