If anyone doubts Scott County Board of Education's commitment to trying to turn SCHS -- a public, taxpayer funded school -- into an ATHLETICS PREP SCHOOL, take a look at this:

http://ukrecruiting.bloginky.com/2012/10/23/w...

A West Virginia athletics prep school is playing a North Carolina athletics prep school in SCOTT COUNTY'S GYM. Does that sound like something that just happens randomly? Tell me, how and why would Scott County's name even come up in a conversation between these two schools??

I'll tell you how -- because instead of focusing on educating our children, the Scott County BOE and Patricia Putty are focusing their time and effort into making a name for Scott County in the athletics prep-school circles. And that's ALL they're doing.

Folks, for the sake of the children of Scott County now, and for years to come, we MUST put an end to this on November 6th by voting in a new school board and getting rid of Patricia Putty. Scott County children don't have a choice about where to attend high school, and we simply cannot afford to have our children forced into attending a school that focuses solely on athletics to the detriment of education!

GO VOTE! VOTE VOTE VOTE! ONE CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT THIS ELECTION IS TO OUR CHILDREN!

How does hosting a game at HS have anything to do with putty? If ANYONE has the insurance and $ they can host an event at the Gym. I guess since upward holds events in sc gyms that Putty is trying to make everyone a Christian? Get real...

I hope they turn it into an athletic prep school. The county needs better athletics. Athletics makes for good citizens. Bud Mackey is a good example. He was a great Foosball player and is now a model citizen contributing to society.

Are you really so naive as to believe these two out-of-state athletic prep schools chose Scott County Kentucky randomly? Yeah, right. I guess they threw a dart at a map and it landed on Scott County High School...

Get real. If it weren't for the extensive efforts of Putty and the BOE to put Scott County on the prep school map, these schools wouldn't even know we exist.

I assume Putty is to blame for gas prices as well...

Hosting events like these are a great way to make money for our school.There's nothing wrong with bringing money into our system.We have one of the top basketball programs in the state and we also are real close to UK,UL,and many other top college programs . Maybe that is why they are playing here.If you don't like basketball you're in the wrong county.

First of all, I'm a basketball fan. What I'm not a fan of is the way the school board and superintendent are neglecting our childrens' education in favor of trying to turn our public high school into a basketball prep school.

Besides that, you missed the point entirely. What we should be wondering about is HOW did Scott County High School even enter the discussion between these two out-of-state prep schools when they were deciding where to hold this match-up? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that either they already knew about Scott County somehow, or someone suggested Scott County, in either of which case it's pretty obvious evidence that *someone* is working to put Scott County on the prep-school map.

Given that it's OUR public high school, and the school that all of Scott county's children MUST attend, and given the fact that there's been so much resistance to building a second high school, the idea that the superintendent and school board have co-opted OUR school for their own personal agenda to make it a basketball prep school should be extremely disturbing.

I feel confident that if we don't throw the bums off the school board in a few weeks, it's going to be too late by the time the next election rolls around.

I've known many people in my life who were extraordinarily good at identifying problems and making sure EVERYONE sees them, and the candidate you're talking about seems to share a lot in common with those folks.

Something else those folks all seemed to share in common was an inability to offer much in the way of any real solutions to the problems they were so quick to bring up. They also share an uncanny knack for making sure they're never, ever linked to the problems they bring up -- and in my experience, it's not for lack of being part of the problem; they're just better at making it look that way.

Having said that, I'll probably vote for the candidate you're talking about simply because he's been instrumental in bringing a lot of these issues into the limelight, and because I think there's probably a lot more problems that have yet to be uncovered. I've no doubt that he'll keep digging, and he'll keep talking as much as he possibly can to anyone who will lend an ear. That is to say, I'll vote for him because I think he'll be useful to the electorate for at least one more term in his current capacity as a tattle-tale. Scott county needed a tattle-tale, and probably will for a while yet.

I'd say that's probably not the ringing endorsement you'd hoped for, but that's how I feel about it.

There is no agenda to turn our school into a basketball prep school. Scott County played that team a couple years ago at Memorial col. at Uk.Where do you come up with this bull about becoming a bball prep school.What other stories are you going to make up?

Well well is so stupid. You know nothing about high school athletics. Nothing. Quit hating.... This is an exciting opportunity for our school and our community. It's extracurricular. Do you know what that means? Look it up.

Yes, they did play them, and they've played several other prep schools in the past. They played - and BEAT - Huntington Prep when Patrick Patterson was on Huntington's team.

Folks, Scott Co RECRUITS HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS. They recruited Dakotah Euton. It was pretty well publicized at the time, and almost became a bit of a scandal. They recruited Scott Hundley away from Dunbar. And where did 7'2" Jared Carter come from? He was born in California, how did he end up in Georgetown? Scott county was in the 'Beach Ball Classic' in 2011 -- one of only 16 "powerhouse programs" invited -- where star recruits included Shabazz Muhammad and Julius Randle.

And now 2013 UK recruiting target Andrew Wiggins is coming with an out of state prep team to play another out of state prep team, and they just HAPPEN to be coming to Scott Co?

Are you people seriously so blind that you can't see what's happening here? Is it not obvious that Putty and the BOE, along with Hicks I'm sure, are trying as hard as they can to turn Scott Co into an athletics prep school just like the ones they try SO HARD to associate with? And can you not see that keeping Scott Co as ONE high school is a part of that agenda?

Any sane person can put 2 and 2 together here folks.

Or could it simply be that there are many people in the county who secretly support the agenda, because they think it's cool, and maybe they don't have kids going to Scott Co High School, so the education part of it really doesn't matter..

Folks, we gotta THROW THE BUMS OUT.

If it were strictly extracurricular, that's fine. But it's not. They're NEGLECTING the high school students by cramming them into an overcrowded school and the whole school's grades are slipping, yet it's clear that Scott County's basketball powerhouse agenda is sailing forward at a pretty good clip.

OBVIOUSLY the priorities are in the wrong place. It's no longer extracurricular -- moving the ball team forward has become part of the curriculum!

Coach Hicks' son passed away last night, well well, so it would be nice if you laid off this subject for a couple of days. It just makes you look insensitive.

I agree with well well. I'm sure he/she had no idea about the crash, much less the death while posting his/her thoughts about the BOE.

SC has never played a Prep School..get your facts..they played Huntington High...Huntington Prep is an entirely different team...In KY high schools are not allowed to compete against prep schools.

Scott County obviously cares more about the athletic program then most anything else , they refuse to build another high school because it would split up the sports team . The plan they have now to use Elkhorn as a second school but not add a cafeteria is just another way they are trying to make parents shut up & keep the teams together . I have nothing against the sports team & think it's great that we have a great athletics department , but maybe we should be focusing on the fact that not all students are athletes & that the school Is much too overcrowded .
