Bad Choices, Bad Pennies, Bad Boys

David & Carla Andrasik

David Martin Andrasik was 42 when he died last week, shot by the father of a 17 year-old boy with whom he was arguing. Andrasik, of Red Bay, leaves a wife and a two week old child behind; his killer is apt to be charged with manslaughter. What were these men thinking?


A Tishomingo County grand jury has failed to indict Timothy Carl Yeager on charges of the sexual abuse of a junior high student; however, the Iuka school system has terminated the former Brooks coach. Yeager is now working in his family's stained glass business.

Due to the statute of limitations, the Tishomingo County district attorney has only six months in which to gather additional evidence against the 57 year-old Killen resident. If any readers have had or know of similar encounters with Yeager, please contact us, and we will forward the information to the appropriate authorities.

Yes, it's a bad penny. In modern idiom, a bad penny is: A person or thing which is unpleasant, disreputable, or otherwise unwanted, especially one which repeatedly appears at inopportune times.

It seems just when one thinks justice has finally been done, this former coach shows up again. We'll have more on the Shoals' version of a bad penny as it becomes available.
