Germ er Insurance ervices COURTESY PHOTO Navy JROTC puts it all on the line for AMI T~:!nveStment of time and sweat - going back to the sweltering months of summer -- that g~i!nto the Lehman Navy JROTC's annual inspection all comes home when the unit puts it all 6i~ the line for its "AMI" (Annual Military Inspection). That was once again the case as the Lehman cadets paraded, stood personal inspection, and answered questions to a cadre of military judges led by visiting Commander Mike Hale, U.S. Navy-Retired and Area 10 Manager of NJROTC. This was the fourth consecutive year the Lehman NJROTC has stood for the stringent AMI, the test including personnel inspection, Individual Platoon Drill (2nd Platoon was singled-out for recognition this year), Unarmed Drill Exhibition, Armed Drill Inspection, and Company Pass in Review. i: ':~ . . ~ , ,!'~i:, 7'i~ PHOTOS BY BRUCE FISHER PHOTOGRAPHY Lehman High School students portrayed accident victims who were dead on arrival or died later at Seton Hospital following last Thursday's mock drunk ddving scene. The program, Shattered Dreams, aims to prevent students from drinking and driving, or getting into a vehicle with an impaired driver. Shattered Dreams Continued from pg. 3B According to HCSO officials, Klingman was taken to jail, booked, pho- tographed and put in a holding cell. She also had to call her parents from jail and tell them she was charged with intoxication manslaughter. The mock crash was just one part of the Shat- tered Dreams program. Each of the crash vic- tims wrote a winning es- say to be part of the event. Lehman's counselors said they had about 25 essay winners who were in- volved either in the crash or throughout the day. Other students with winning essays were pulled from class by the Grim Reaper, played by volunteer Kyle firefighter Mike Fulton. The Reaper went room to room every 15 minutes selecting more victims -- silently placing a hand on their shoulder representing how often someone dies in drunken drMng-related car crash. A HCSO deputy read obituaries to the classes of those pulled by the Grim Reaper. Photos and obituaries were later posted in the main hallway, decked out as a graveyard, where others could write a note to the deceased victims. Those victims, who returned to class in make-up and black t-shirts, spent the rest of the day in com- plete silence. Parents of the mock deceased victims were notified by the sheriff's office about their son's or daughter's death. HCSO officials said everything was prearranged so as not to completely freak out families. On Thursday night, the "dead" students par- ticipated in an off-sight retreat to discuss their experience. All outside communication was cut off. They wrote letters to their parents, in some cases apologizing for causing an accident or getting in the car with a drunk driver. An assembly on Friday gave Lehman students a chance to discuss their feelings and experiences about Shattered Dreams. 512-295-6530 3601 Kyle Crossing, Ste. A.
