A new Elementary School is being built but not another new High School in Scott County. Not enough money. Oh well, maybe when Casinos make there way into Kentucky we will get a new High School.

I doubt it! We were "promised" that our schools would be well taken care of financially when the lottery came to Kentucky! That ease a big damn lie too!

Nine months and a tax increase, ms putty will guarantee a new high school. She looks so much like kts and sound like her, I believe their twins. Both dumb huge butted blondes.

it is these kinds of comments that make this site so frustrating to be used as intended. What do dumb huge butted blondes have to do with this topic. Or should I say what do their appearances or your opinion of their appearances have to do with anything ? Back to the topic ..... It's sport related. It's unfair. It's wrong in every sense of the way. With the amount of school taxes that come into s.c.schools each year from Toyota employees alone should mean that we as taxpayers and parents shouldn't have our children in an overcrowded,unsafe, unproductive enviroment. I have three children in high school. Two are school athletes. I'm aware of the issue at hand . A new elementary school doesn't make near the sense that a new high school would. But, go to some of the next games. Look around at who's in the stands, beaming with Pride to be apart of a winning school. Just as I am as well but not at the expense of most of the h.s. students.

I also think that sports is behind the reason the new high school isn't being pushed that hard. Make it easy, have no sports programs at the new Scott West High School.

No fooling, my point is that between them both our community is going down the toilet at the taxpayers expense, and that effects everybody including the children.

I agree with David. Billy Hicks and McKee don't want their teams split when district is line out between schools.

I think sports is a non-issue because the only thing that is preventing the construction of a new high school is money...period. FYI, all the lottery money goes into education, but it isn't near enough to pay for education costs.

My idea

It may be sports motivated, but that doesn't seem very calculated.

As long as SCHS is 6A we will NEVER win a football champsionship. We will ALWAYS be second to a private school in Louisville. The ONLY way to win a football championship is:

1. Split into two schools.

2. Both school should be farily close so there is no real distrciting problem...geography would be meaningless.

3. One school should stay large and attract most of the kids (4A or 5A). The other school should be small and attract a small number (1A or 2A).

4. The small school should be a magnet school for kids in honor programs. The small school should be where everyone else goes.

5. Kids and parents truly worried about education go to the smaller school. Kids and parents worried about athletics go the the larger school and still have great teams now competing in a easier class. Everyone wins.

I'm somewhat thinking out loud here, so I'm sure someone will be able to find flaws in the plan, but I think it is a good premise. With a little more thought by some smarter people it could work quite well.

I'm sure someone will have something to say. But.....you do have a good point.

I think by thinking out loud you have shot a bullet in the theory that we don't have a new high school because of athletics...that's simply and excuse for someone that doesn't have anything else to blame this situation on. Thanks for speaking out.

I have lived in gtown since the early 70's and it WAS a great place to grow up.. I really want to know what went so wrong!!!!! I understand toyota came but honestly, Any town/county would be excited. They have given a better life for so many but what happened to our town. I might be naive but we have always had sports and have always achieved at them. Sports are good but education is so much more important. Why can't the powers that be see that ? Why can't we have coaches that coach our hometown boys and be proud. Why do they want to "recruit"? We all lnow we so but look at the wnd result. It is only a disgrace to our hometown. Our county has enough talent to support 2 high schools. Why do we play coaches more than the teachers that can make a difference I'm kids lives? Sad this is what our town has become......

I just graduated from the dump known as schs in 2009. There was overcrowding when my class entered the school and now its gotten even more out of hand. I now have a child of my own and while Scott county is where I want to raise him, you can bet on it that he will not attend any school where lockers or desks are shared or where sports prevail over education. I think its important to have a sports program and its icing on the cake if they're actually worth a sh!t, its giving kids something to do other than run the streets and get into trouble but playing ball only gets you so far! The focus should be on the teaching not coaching. That being said, a new school would ve ideal for splitting this mass of kids up. More room, more hands on learning, 2 sports programs that arent as competitive. Hell maybe more than the overfed, held back kids will have some playing time too! There are a lot of aspects that EVERYONE can see, the ones who've spent too much time being tackled on the football field are the ones who choose to turn the other cheek.

I think it has a lot to do with the sports why another high school is not being built. My son played football and baseball for SCHS and let me tell you they had very long practices even on the weekends that by the time he got home after practice all he had time to do was take a shower then eat and do his homework, so there were times he was up till midnight doing it. They can't even get a job because the coaches will not allow them to. With baseball the parents are out so much time and money doing fundraisers for the booster club to have money.You have to be at the U.K football games 6hrs before the game even starts so there is times you have to be there at 6 am and not get to leave until around 3pm or so. You have to work the home football teams & basketball making pizza's, then Toyota Classic,and Amazon and other things as well plus concession.This is a lot for one parent to do if they have other children.Also with baseball you have to pay almost $500.00 for you child to go to Florida, that's not counting what you are out by the time you go and pay for a room,gas, and any extra. So with all the work that the parents do why doesn't the booster club atleast pay for the boys way to Florida? Not to mention after doing all that work your child is not guaranteed to make the team.Everyone talks about McKee and Billy Hicks but Willard is involved in it too look at all the money that the baseball team gets from the parents and he has no respect for either the boys or the parents.

Willard has nothing to do with this discussion. The baseball team doesnt win so 2 high schools wouldnt hurt them like it will football and basketball. Hell the baseball teams best player did not play his senior season this year due mostly to how the coaches treat the players. he supposedly took a ripping last year after the season because he wanted to get a job and try to support himself. to much talent at the school to not have a winning team
