Editor:
At first I was pleased with the sheriff’s notion to provide a temporary, flashing road-side sign encouraging prom attendees of Dunedin High School to “‘Make Good Choices.”‘

The Beacon also made the suggestion to “Promise.”

And the final thought: “‘Don’t Drink and Drive.” At first passing I thought that it was great to remind our teens to be responsible. But pause there for a minute. Think about it. Our teens. Our teens need to be reminded to not get behind the wheel after tossing back a few? Doesn’t this message quietly read: “‘We know you’re going to drink anyway, so go ahead ... but just don’t drive after”? I don’t think this is the appropriate pre-prom admonition, especially from our Sheriff’s Office. Drinking under the age of 21 is still illegal, and those breaking this law should be treated as such. Perhaps then drinking at the prom will cease to be a foregone conclusion, and our children can be safe a little longer. Our sheriff needs an editor. The sign should have read: Don’t Drink!
