43 THE PALM BEACH POST TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1999 MSL pktch out, she's showing all the signs of instability , No musical chairs I believe Montgomery is sincerely afraid, which made her performance that much more bizarre. When it came time for her to speak at the brief meeting, she stumbled in a way students of Psychology 101 might expect "What do you mean by intimate danger?" she asked at one point. That was "imminent," not "intimate," danger. At another point she asked: "Can we recommend that a complete physical and psychological examination be done to determine (Prettyman's) competency?" The question had already been answered, but she apparently wasn't listening. She was too agitated. Too afraid. Too unstable. "It's hard for me to believe that we can send this type of message to our children and our fellow employees," she told her colleagues, as they dismissed Prettyman's alleged threat as the simple boneheaded remark it was. As others filed out of the meeting, Montgomery went over to board Chairwoman Sandra Richmond and told her she wanted Prettyman's seat to be changed. ; "I'm not going to play musical chairs," Richmond told her. j Poor Montgomery. Alone. Unhinged. Now, which one was supposed to be the crazy one? , Frank Cerabino Knew Too Much. "I know," she said after the meeting, still agitated. "I was a guidance counselor." The signs are there It was painful to watch, as Montgomery's obsessive concern over Prettyman's alleged threat against her and board member Paulette Burdick fizzled into nothing. The board voted 5-2 to take no V Ul 4. 1 a, ueiLt me uui Here. Which one was supposed to be the crazy one? ' Prettyman, the school board ! lawyer? ; Nah. Cynthia Prettyman didn't look too unhinged to me. The last I saw of her, she was ' smiling and joking as she walked out of the room. . No, the over-stressed, unsta- , ble, and bizarre-acting character ; at Monday's special meeting of the Palm Beach County School Board appeared to be board ; member Dorothy Montgomery. She was a character right out , of Alfred Hitchcock, fearful of an unseen threat, the lone belea- ; guered soul crying for help in a room full of people who didn't want to hear it. The Woman Who Criminal By John Pacenti ' Palm Beach Post Staff Writer ; ; WEST PALM BEACH Te-; flon Twan turned to Velcro on i Monday. ! ; . Antwan "Teflon Twan" Way, : who earned his nickname by ' beating felony charges at four separate trials in the past three years, couldn't persuade a 12-member jury to make it five in a . row. ! - Prosecutors, angered by the ' difficulty of convicting Way in the ; past, crowed at the verdict after ; Wi hours of deliberation. ; . "I guess as far as the Teflon ' handle, I think it's Velcro Twan now," prosecutor Kirk Volker said. The courtroom was full of ' relatives of the defendant and his ' victim when the jury found Way, case against Teflon Twan' sticks in court stung that her colleagues dis missed her concern as silly paranoia. "If you would take Psychology 101, you would know that all the signs are there," Montgomery told me after the meeting. She was talking about Prettyman's alleged instability and her propensity for violence. "I think we need to watch her very carefully," Montgomery said about the lawyer. "I'm going to request her chair be moved." Montgomery said she doesn't want Prettyman sitting at the dais with her because it would allow Prettyman to sneak up on her. "I want her down there," Montgomery said, pointing to the seating area in front of the dais. "This way she isn't walking behind me." James Paulk of Riviera Beach outside a convenience store. Some jurors said they believed he was guilty but decided to acquit him based on a lack of evidence. Way faces a mandatory life sentence without parole when sentenced on Friday. His attorney, Michael Salnick, refused comment except to say there were numerous issues to appeal. The main witness in the case the ex-girlfriend Kendra Lang spent see months in jail rather than turn on Way, fearing for her life. When she did testify, it was only under the state's new witness-protection program, written for lawmakers by State Attorney Barry Krischer. "All of my witnesses were afraid," Volker said.

Prettyman said she'd like to shoot Montgomery and Burdick with her shotgun, an outburst she explained was never meant as anything but an expression of frustration. "I said an offhand comment that was taken out of context," she told the board Monday. Nearly everybody seemed willing to believe her, choosing, as board member Tom Lynch suggested, that "it's time for us to move on." Even Burdick, who voted with Montgomery to take some sort of action against Prettyman, was quick to say after the vote that she was willing to move on. But Montgomery fumed, building. "It's really almost sinister," Volker said. The victim was a young man who had no record at all. A nice kid from a really nice family. ... I feel relieved. I just didn't want to see it happen again." Four times before prosecutors tried to convict Way, once of second-degree murder and three times of aggravated battery. All involved shootings. Four times before, Way got off. In the most serious incident, Way, known as "Snake" on the street, was found not guilty in the third trial after two mistrials in the June 1997 shooting death of Demetrius Parker of West Palm Beach.
