I disagree. Whether or not Mr. Morales used the best judgment, it would appear he was willing to sacrifice himself in order to allow his friends to attend the prom. Seems pretty selfless. My understanding is a couple of the other kids also attempted to take responsibility.
Katie May 01, 2012 at 05:38 AM
He was trying to do a nice thing and that was to get us into prom. They wouldn't let us in if no one owned up to it, do he took one for the team and did it. Now Aaron, you are trying to find something to make it look like we did something wrong when we did nothing wrong. I'm sure in your high school days you did the same thing by lying to make things better for a bad situation. Don't try and make it look like he did something he wasn't supposed to do. He was being unselfish and sacrificed himself for all 35 of us.

The principal should have met with the 35 this morning and the entire group discuss the mistakes that were made, who ever apologize for the mistakes, put guidelines together to try to prevent it from happening again and start mending the disconnect between the students, parents & administration. I believe if this happened most of the coverage today would not have happened.
Brandy Hensley May 01, 2012 at 07:34 AM
Don't worry Katie- have you noticed the people who attack you and The 35 all hide behind an alias. It takes a lot of courage to post and own it with your name. I believe Aaron, Miranda L, Eva are the same person or why do they hide behind fake names. I have a lot to lose. We have a business in Dixon and we are at risk for offending customers or future customers. Yet, I find it more important to stand up for what I believe in and hopefully the people who really know me and my family will support us. I know in my heart I fight for what is right as you, your friends and your parents do. Many of us have been mistreated this year. Oddly most of us have been Dixon's schools biggest volunteers. Perhaps these people hiding behind an alias are the people who stand to lose the most if their layer of protection is gone and the admin is finally held accountable. Only a coward would attack these kids under an alias after all they had been through this weekend and everyone knows who they really are anyway.
Katie May 01, 2012 at 03:46 PM
It makes no sense to tell us a kid did the wrong thing by lying to the admin to try and get us into prom and him get in trouble, then try and give us sympathy. Obviously you're trying to find the littlest thing to make it look like something we did was wrong. You're the only one against us, clearly!
Eva C May 01, 2012 at 03:50 PM
Wow Brandy, trying to call me out as having an alias. How pathetic. I don't have time to create three aliases and post comments to a patch article. This is my name, and just because I don't like to post my last name all over the internet does not mean squat. I have no idea who Aaron or Miranda are so your comments just show your ignorance. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are. Just because you might not agree with it does not make my comment any less valid. None of us really have any idea what happened, everything is heresy so as far as I'm concerned no one should take any offense to anything until all the facts are released (although I'm not sure the real truth will ever be known). Do you see me calling out people on these posts because they do not agree with me? No you don't. I know, what its like to be a teenager, I know we make mistakes. I'd probably be pissed off if I knew the rules and someone I was with decided to break them. It's also hard to believe that not 1 of the 35 students seem to know whose bottle it really was. There are conflicting statements from supposed students saying someone claimed it but it really wasn't theirs. I'd have hoped that someone on that bus would have known and would have done the right thing and taken it to the bus driver and said something (might be naive thinking). Regardless things on both sides were done incorrectly. We can blame the students, we can blame the administration, but that doesn't solve anything.
Eva C May 01, 2012 at 03:52 PM
Also Brandy, If I listed my name as Eva Carlson, would that satisfy you, or would you still be calling me a fraud?
Katie May 01, 2012 at 04:20 PM
If we knew who's bottle it was OBVIOUSLY we would make that person own up to it or rat that person out. We wanted to get into our prom!!?? You and Aaron both are trying to find anything to make it look like we did something wrong. And yes, you were a high school student once, I'm sure you have lied plenty of times, so don't be hypocritical to yourself. You and Aaron are the only negative people here who no one takes your side with.
Eva C May 01, 2012 at 04:45 PM
Katie, I don't have all the facts, I can't make it look anyway. And no one does. I don't necessarily like how the administration handled the situation. If I was a parent I'd be furious that the parents were not called. Balls were dropped on both sides. My point is, sometimes people make mistakes and we are punished for it. You might not like it, but its life. Life is unfair. I've done plenty of stuff or been with friends when I was younger who have done things that could have gotten us all in trouble. The point is there was a bottle with alcohol found and unfortunately most likely someone on that bus brought it on. As far as the contract, it seemed to be more of a threat then anything and when the time came to actually implement it no one had a plan (bad on the administration). HS students and alcohol don't mix. I had three friends in HS who were in a car with an older driver who was drunk, one of them lost his leg and was super close to death, the other one broke all his bones in his right foot and the other one was saved by the guy who almost died bc he would have flown out the front window. I'm sorry if you think I am trying to blame you, but alcohol is dangerous and I know not everyone was drinking or may have been aware of it. Its a lesson that hopefully not only the 35 have learned the hard way, but hopefully all the DHS students have learned. zero tolerance is just that. As far as the other stories of drunk students in the dance that is a whole other issue.
Karen Moraes May 01, 2012 at 06:02 PM
Hey Aaron that some kid Jake Moraes (not Morales) is my kid and I couldn't be more proud of him. Way to to go Jake!! He was willing to take one for the team. Since no one was coming forward he thought he'd take the blame so all his friends that spent a lot of money and that were looking so forward to this evening to get into the prom. Kudos to you Jake Mo I'm so proud you'd put yourself into jeopardy for others. Now that is integrity!! What is so pathetic is that when Jake told the principal it was his Barsotti said "I know it wasn't yours Jake" so then why didn't he let Jake into the prom???? The news said Barsotti sent them an email and stated he was working with the parents and students to resolve this matter. NO he is not he wouldn't see me when I went to his office and he won't return my phone call. Now that's lying!!
Luella Guaydacan May 01, 2012 at 08:27 PM
Brandy, you are so right!! If you have something to say, at least have the guts to sign your full name.
Karen Moraes May 01, 2012 at 09:38 PM
I just got off the phone with John Barsotti and I asked him why I or any other parent were not called and he said "I just didn't have enough time" then I asked him why he didn't follow his own contract about breathalyzers and he said "I'm not allowed to breathalyze a group of students only if I suspect a student to be under the influence of alcohol" I told him I will be a at that meeting tomorrow Wed. at 7:45 in the Dixon High theater and something better be done about this unfortunate situation.
Sharie Sprague May 01, 2012 at 09:46 PM
Karen --- thanks for sharing this information.
Sharie Sprague May 01, 2012 at 09:51 PM
"What is so pathetic is that when Jake told the principal it was his Barsotti said "I know it wasn't yours Jake" so then why didn't he let Jake into the prom?" None of Principal Barsotti's decisions make sense.
Sharie Sprague May 01, 2012 at 09:55 PM
I admire what your son did.
Jolander May 01, 2012 at 10:28 PM
I think that if the students were willing there should not have been a problem. We are all very proud of Jake. He is a great kid and he is a great friend.
Melissa Arnold May 01, 2012 at 10:59 PM
Good for him. :)
Melissa Arnold May 01, 2012 at 11:01 PM
Wow, 4 hours wasnt enough time. I wonder what would be enough.
