First Thanks coach cal and the kentucky wildcats for donating shoes to the kids that really needed the shoes!!!! Now to the greedy parents that can afford to buy your kids their own shoes and took the free shoes anyway SHAME ON YOU. I have seen Teachers, Social workers, and others posting pictures of their children getting their free shoes. Greedy Greedy Greedy!!! If you can afford to buy your children then why take the free ones? I don't think this is what they intended.

It is rather sad that there are those that wish to make such a issue of these kind gesture. I agree that it would have been nice that all three schools could have participated, but that was a choice made by the charity - not anyone in the school system.
Why can, we as a community, not let those that participated enjoy the moment? I am astounded at the rantings of those who felt left out.
It is greedy, selfish, and unbecoming of those that are teaching out children. No wonder out kids are turning out the way they do - they are learning it at home and in the classroom.
This is precisely why our county and our community lags behind - something as positive as this event - was turned into a controversy. We should be ashamed!

You will always have people standing with both hands out, instead of giving with the other one. Then again you can always count on the whiners and moaners, complaining that Honey Boo Boo or Billy Bob didn't get a freebie.
Coach Cal did a wonderful gesture of giving but some people think they should have it all. Gee Whiz get a life...

For the record.....Coach Cal and the UK men's basketball team did NOT donate shoes. They only donated their time and attention. The shoes as well as the entire event was brought to us courtesy of Samaritan's Feet. I'm sorry that RRVE didn't get to participate, but that wasn't a choice that anyone here had anything to do with. Furthermore, RRVE receives food, clothing, and other donations from charities that RES and CES does not get. If I'm not mistaking, RRVE students get Christmas gifts that others don't. Can't you all just be thankful for the ones that did get to participate?!?

If you feel like your school got slighted then go talk to the youth or family resource directors. CES and RES family resource director is Susan Lacy and RRVE family resource director is Julie Rogers. I don't know who is the Youth resource director at WCMS or WCHS. It is part of thier job to help find opportunities like the samaritan's feet program.
The only complaint I would have is if every child did not get a pair of shoes. It was my understanding that only those considered low income got to participate. That isn't right. Those that are just above the poverty line have a lot of trouble making ends meet and don't get government assistance.
Otherwise I think it was great. THese kids got to see what hard work and good grades can do. THat they can make something of thier lives. That there is more to aim for than just setting around on the bridge, getting high or getting pregnant to just try and hang on to some boy. I would love to see more of this in our schools and our community as a whole.

It is almost incomprehensible to think that there is actually a controversy about a gesture from a charitable organization. This is Christmas and people are fussing, complaining, and bitching about not being invited.
And, I would be willing to bet that a lot of these people are the first ones talking about the "joy of giving", the true meaning of Christmas, and all that other religious stuff that happens around this time of year. And, I also bet that some of these same people are the ones hollering that God has been taken out of our schools and Christ has been taken out of Christmas.
Geez, people, get a life, be grateful for what you have, be thankful that some of our children received a treat yesterday, and quit complaining.
I agree with another poster - this is why our county and city is so far behind. Because we are so selfish, greedy, and if we aren't involved, it is a terrible thing.

Each and every child was able to participate regardless of income. The only ones that did not participate are those children whose parents signed a paper stating that they did NOT want their child to be involved in this event!

I can't believe grown people act like this, my child did recieve the shoes and the picture. She didn't get her feet washed by a player or coach cal, and she didnt socialized with them either. She got the shoes and there to big but she said it was nice for someone to offer them to her. I personally am just glad to see her smiling face every evening when she gets out of school. We should be thankful this is why our children made the news in this day in time, and it wasn't something as tragic as what happened in Conneticut. As far as all this goes why don't you all argue about the difference in education offered at each school. My child has had teachers who challenge her since day one, she would get ten plus spelling words a week and started addition almost immediately from day one in school and i talk to some parents whose child has a week to learn three word for spelling and color almost all day in school. My child hardly ever brings home a coloring sheet, and I am so glad because I can teach her to color at home. Since her K teacher was so great she is now in first grade reading on a second-third grade level. To her K teacher and frist grade teacher I say thank you for the challenges that you give my child, and to helping me to make her future a whole lot brighter.

I am one very proud parent of a wonderful young lady!!!!!!!!!

I am glad to hear every child had the opportunity to participate. That is the way it should be. Like I said, I am glad these people came to our schools and showed these kids they can become more than bridge setters and druggies and teen mommas and daddies. Maybe next time the Lady Wildcats can join the Men's team in this.

Poor little children. I guess their moms and dads couldn't take some of their meth money to buy them any shoes.

It was brought to my attention my name was mentioned on this site... I would like to make it VERY clear Amy nor myself have ever "blasted" this cause. I even went public on Facebook saying it was a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. Sure, I wish the students could have participated who attend RRVE, but I do understand the reason we didn't get to. Please get your facts straight before you publicly state names. If you question my comments on Facebook please go back and reread them. I wish whoever wrote this comment would remove it. Your information is far from the truth and very degrading to Amy and myself.

I have just read these posts on topix after reading Glennas facebook post and just for the record, for anyone thinking it...I have not posted any of this on topix under another name...this is my first post and if I have anything to say to anyone I will say it to their face, not on topix. I am a bigger person than that! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I'm sure your child was given the memo but failed to bring it home to you it's probably been swept into a trash can or they made a paper airplane with it, In any case every child got one and every child received a pair of shoes if the paper was filled out and returned to the school,if not I'm sure you taught your child how to be responsible for there own belongings, Like I here on the scanner every day or two the principle of one of the schools radio the bus Drivers and tell them to look for a cell phone or a DS game or any of that stuff, it's not there Responsibility to keep up with your child's belongings, BUT most of the time I here that Driver say yea I found it when they could just say I'm not going too look for that stuff,it's not there job to look for personal belongings on a bus but they do, it's very nice of them to do that for someone,

What's so funny about this is yes, every kid did bring home a paper but it did not have to be filled out and returned. Quit bad mouthing students and their parents when you have no clue what you are talking about. My child brought home the paper and it only had to be returned if you refused the service for your child..lol
