brain with alcohol even once,that kid is several times morelikely to become an alcoholicas an adult,” he said.Durkin is a criminolo-gist who specializes in bingedrinking. He says mostunderage drinkers don’tsimply have a beer or two;when they drink, they con-sume more than a moderateamount. He says alcohol’simpairing influence is visiblewith college-age kids, not tomention teenagers.“I’ve been teaching col-lege since 1992 and I cantell the difference between afreshman and a senior. Theydon’t make good life-judge-ments even without alcoholbecause their brain is stilldeveloping. When you throwalcohol on top of it, it’s arecipe for disaster,” he said.Durkin, who is a parenthimself, says many parentsthink if they are more lenientwith teenagers, their par-enting style will minimizerebellion.“I think parents assumeif they let their kids drink athome, they’ll only drink athome. That’s naive. The kidis simply getting a couplefreebies before heading out,”he said. “I hate to tell par-ents this but kids are goingto rebel no matter what. So,if you’re letting your kiddrink with you, the rebellionwill have to go up a notch.The closer we keep it to thestraight and narrow, the bet-ter.”Delphos Police Chief KyleFittro says underage drinkingspikes at graduation-time.He says sometimes, parentsdon’t give kids permissionto drink but many do and arecomplicit in the act.“I don’t know how manytimes I have to beat parentsupside the head with this, butparents really need to under-stand that you cannot hostunderage drinking parties. If anything should happen, youcan be held liable. If the kidsdrink at your house and leaveand get in a wreck, criminalcharges and/or a civil lawsuit— that means money — cancome right back on you,” hesaid.Fittro says taking precau-tions such as making themsurrender car keys doesn’twork when dealing with less-mature people whose natureis to rebel.“The last thing I wouldever do is let a bunch of kids come to my house anddrink because there are athousand different ways thatcan go wrong. There areso many ways hosting anunderage drinking party cango wrong, that it isn’t evenfunny,” he said. “I’ve seenincidents like that, wherethe adult makes them puttheir keys in a bucket andthey tell them they have tostay the night. Well, for onething, you don’t have theauthority to allow someoneelse’s kid to drink in yourhome. That is against thelaw. The other thing is thosekids may not comply withthe rules. They may sneakout and wander off. Theymay have a friend pick themup or they may be on foot;they don’t need a car to getinto trouble.”Fittro said under statelaw, underage consump-tion as a first-degree misde-meanor punishable with upto six months in jail and a$1,000 fine if the offender isbetween 18-20 years of age.He said the law grants judgesmore latitude in sentencingyounger offenders. He saidmost juveniles caught withalcohol in their system arebetween the ages of 15-17and they’re usually caught atparties, which is where theybinge-drink.“Kids who are gener-ally good kids — kids whoare involved in things likesports, FFA or Scouts —those kids don’t usually getinto trouble but these are thekids we find at parties. Itisn’t necessarily somethingthey do every weekend butthey go to a party whereother kids are drinking andthere’s peer pressure, sothey start drinking,” he con-cluded.High temperature Thursdayin Delphos was 86 degrees,low was 60. High a year agotoday was 82, low was 59.Record high for today is 90,set in 1977. Record low is 36,set in 1963.

learned from teaching is thatstudents are most successfulwhen parents, students andteachers work together.“Parental involvement isthe key,” she said. “If parentstreat school like it’s impor-tant, students will, too.”Tate enjoyed her careerand along the way createda style what works best forher regarding her students.“I’ve always though that if you could teach in a mannerthat they and you can enjoyit, it’s not so much work,” shesaid. “Humor can solve a lotof problems. And sometimes,the lessons best taught aren’ton the lesson at all.”When noting her accom-plishments, Tate didn’t haveto look far for what gave herthe most satisfaction.“I was always most proudof taking a student who hadnot done well in grade schooland talking them into tryingit one more time. It’s easy toteach a smart kid. They prac-tically teach themselves,” shesaid. “We worry about all ourstudents. We want them to besuccessful later in life. We wantthem to be well-rounded anddevelop a good attitude towardothers and use it later in life. Wewant them to gain confidence inthemselves as they learn.”As for future plans, Tate isgoing to see how it goes.“I am going to do abso-lutely nothing for year andafter that, who knows?”
