I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

Where the heck were all these teachers when I was in school?!?

Tulare teacher to spend one year in jail for sex with students

VISALIA, Calif. A former high school teacher convicted of having sex with three male students will spend a year in county jail after a judge suspended her prison sentence.
Twenty-six-year-old Elizabeth Stow pleaded no contest in June to 12 felony counts, including sexual intercourse with a minor and oral copulation. She was a first-year English teacher at Tulare Western High School.

In a hearing today, Tulare County Superior Court Judge Walter Gorelick gave her a suspended prison sentence of nine years and four months. Stow instead will be sent to county jail for one year -- followed by five years of probation with 28 special conditions such as seeking counseling and surrendering her teaching credential.

Stow also must register as a sex offender.

The Day So Far...

I've managed to make Eastwood mad at me again. Took him to the vet's today for his annual checkup and immunizations. Almost didn't get him into the cat carrier to take him there... he put up quite a fight. He meowed loudly all the way there, and all the way back. He checked out well at the vet's, and weighs 12.5 pounds. Dr. Cooper himself was the only vet there, one of the others was out sick, and another was on vacation. Gave Eastwood some treats after I got him home, in an attempt to calm him down a bit.

Later, I went to "Wally World" and fought the crowds for a few grocery items... and a DVD set. Bought volume three of "The Looney Tunes Golden Collection", to go with the first two volumes. Took forever at the check-out, because the disc wouldn't scan... register kept saying "Item Not Found"... the girl had to call "Electronics" and get a different number to put into the register before it would "take". I'll probably be parked in front of the television watching it tonight, starting with the bonus features, which I always watch first on any new DVD I get for some reason.
