Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
Doug Gotterba, who claims he served as Travolta's pilot from 1981 to 1987, recently gave a tell-all interview to The National Enquirer about his "steamy affair" with the actor. Soon after the story published, Gotterba says he received a letter from Travolta's attorney, Marty Singer, threatening to sue him for violating a confidentiality agreement he signed when he stopped working for Travolta.
In the suit Gotterba filed in response to the letter, he alleges that he did sign a termination agreement, but it did not include anything regarding confidentiality. Gotterba goes on to say that he did nothing wrong and should be allowed to discuss his alleged relationship with Travolta without fear of a lawsuit.
However, Singer told TMZ Gotterba did sign a contract that includes a confidentiality agreement and that he included the document in his lawsuit. "Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame. We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed," Singer told the site.
This is the fourth lawsuit brought on against Travolta this year. Two masseurs and a cruise worker sued him over accusations of improper sexual behavior, but the suits were later dropped.
