The students in a photograph taken at a Friday night football game by Monitor staff photograper R. Norman Matheny, and appearing in the Monitor on Oct. 20 and Nov. 3, want it understood that they do not drink -- that they "do not mix" with alcohol.
This was the photographer's assignment: to go to a high school football game to see if he could find a group of students clearly having fun and enjoying themselves withoutm using alcohol. As these students remarked, "He could have found plenty of kids who were drinking that evening."
But the students pictured here were not drinking (and do not drink), and they want this point made clear. As one of their parents requested: "Tell your readers that these students and alcohol don't mix."
