Hernando letters: Proper attire benefits students

Re: Dress code is nonissue; focus on real problems March 9 editorial

Proper attire

benefits students

I differ with this editorial. Of course, a dress code is important. Proper attire brings out proper behavior and positive attitudes. Attire that is slutty, sloppy, sexy and risque brings problems and improper behavior. Needless to say, the focus is not on schoolwork, academic studies and education about the right subjects.

So, dress well and feel great about yourselves. That is what students should be told regarding a dress code.

Another important factor is that the schools mentioned are not yet teaching "body parts."

Poetic points

about dress code

Clothes make the man, it's true.

And that goes for pretty girls, too.

Wayne thinks it is large,

And we put him in charge.

I'm surprised at your opposite view.

Good, clean fun for good cause

I am a flier and the secretary on the board for the Ocala Flying Model Club (www.ocalaflying I was appalled after reading the article about the restrictions to fliers in Hernando County.

You have a group of older gentlemen continuing or fulfilling a hobby for themselves and a dream to learn to fly for others. It is important to note these same gentlemen hosted an event to benefit hospice.

The neighbor, Ron Deal, should be ashamed of himself, especially when he quotes "but it's the people we have to be concerned about." I am more concerned about someone like him who would try to discredit or punish people who are having good, clean fun and helping organizations like hospice.

Bus ride a bargain

as gas price soars

THE Bus will benefit all people if we have the service we need for all. I have been riding THE Bus for five years and I think we should have Saturday service, as people work and can't get to the sales.

If we have to pay gas prices this high, I think $2 will not be too much to pay for the services we need. Our future is THE Bus.

Re: Choose your work friends wisely | March 9 story

Wrong friend

can abet a crime

This advice should be given to students in college and also in high school.

We constantly read about some misguided individual going along for a thrill ride, robbery and shoplifting. Even if that person had nothing to do with the crime committed, it is called "abetting," which means supporting a criminal.

Choosing a friend is not easy. It is one of the most difficult decisions to make.

I tell fortunes on Halloween at the show the Hernando County Recreation Department puts on. Most who come to me are seniors in high school and college students. I tell all to be careful who they choose as friends.
