I think Mrs Schmid was wrong in coming to the conclusion that these boys were drag racing and I don't think it was any of the kids Tyler went to school with. I also think that she made a big mistake by putting this story on the front page of the paper. Whoever the persons were that was laying rubber on the pavement was definitely in the wrong and the kids in the pasture should never have been cheering them on but I really and truly don't think you know anything about teenagers. I don't think these kids left a funeral with the intentions of having a drag race to pay tribute to Tyler.
Had the spinning and laying rubber stopped? When the deputy rode by? Did they see it and refused to stop are was it just the kids in the pasture that they saw?
Black marks and tire tracks decorate the road that I live on, and the people that place them there are very clever and hard to catch. But the deputy sheriff cannot arrest someone on the bases of black marks. They would have to be in the act. If you were so concerned about the safety of these teenagers would it have not been better to ask to spoke with the sheriff at Johns and ask him to have spoken with the kids about the dangers of making bad decisions that cannot be took back. I think these teenagers would have been more receptive to hearing what needed to be said if it had been approached with some love sympathy and understanding., remember they had just lost one of their own. Anything you thought you accomplished by confronting these friends and loved ones of Tyler went out the window when you acting like the judge and jury. I'm not saying you did'nt have a right to make a complaint to the sheriff but you should not have tried to control the issue yourself you just made it worse and I don't really think any of them would value your opinion now. Tylers death was not in vain and I know he will be truly missed and I'm sure that his death will save another teenagers life. Because even though you don't want to believe it there is some that will remember Tyler and be little more careful with their decisions. I have a granddaughter that is in Banks County School, I know that I can tell this has had a profound effect on her and she realizes that we can makes foolish decision that cost us more that we could ever realize. You cannot force this kind of insight on to any teenager by approaching them with a holier than thou attitude.
Ummm, why are you still on this subject? The story above is about a drunk guy wanting his back popped and then coming on to a 15 year old girl.....just goes to show that some people that live on Sims Bridge Rd are idiots (and I'm not talking about the Bush family so don't go there). I think the best way is to drop this so the Bush/Hart family can grieve. Don't you think?

While not everyone on Sims Bridge is an idiot, I do believe that there are some sections that really need some help. Mind you, I DO NOT live on Sims Bridge. Our road connects to it.
The above article is just another part of the saga between these two neighbors. Trust me.
I did not call all people on Sims Bridge Rd an idiot, I said some are. I do not live on that road either but on a side road off of it. I do agree with you about neighbor sagas lol. I think just about everyone has something they do not care for about their neighbors. Kinda makes you wish for the days that everybody helped everybody and truly liked their neighbors.
