    School gets check, note for '73 vandalism

    vandal's conscience has gnawed at him for decades. Shull Elementary School received a $2,500 cashier's check with a three-sentence unsigned note confessing to vandalizing the school 32 years ago. It was addressed to Principal Chris Ann Horsley.
    "Approximately 32 years ago, myself and a group of local kids broke into a classroom and vandalized the room terribly. I have felt guilty for far too long and want to give something back to the school that I personally took from. I am sorry for any grief that I caused anyone at that time," the note read.

    It was signed: "A Regretful Baby-Boomer."

    The school, which opened in 1960, doesn't have records dating back to 1973, Horsley said. But second grade teacher Delphine Kiser, who has worked at Shull for 33 years, remembers a break-in into her classroom during her early years.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    That's great. Your conscious (if you have one) can really wreak havoc with you sometimes.....
