Was recently told by county commissioner Boone athletic trainer was waste of taxpayers $40,000.00 plus yearly salary. It is public record(salary). Sure Crockett has one too. What does he do during day? Could this not be part-time salary to match this part-time position? Call your school board and county commissioners. This item should be cut next year and hear it will. Sure Moorehouse is an ok guy but ......

Just curious, why do so many come to TOPIX looking for answers? Why not call the director of schools or the athletic director?????????? You will get nothing but gossip and lies on here. GO STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE!

Well, since Boone offers Weighlifting as a class, and also has gym classes, could it be that the trainer is there in case of any injuries during those two offered classes? By the way, those classes go on all day, and if I was in one and pulled or tore a muscle, I sure wouldn't want to have to wait until the part-time trainer (who would probably be sub-par with a part time job) to come in.

Craig Moorehouse is a good guy and a good trainer. He works with all sport athletes and even works with middle school athletes and their injuries. As a father of a Boone athlete, any school that offers athletic teams, needs a full-time trainer. Alot of the treatment taken by the athletes occur in the morning before school even starts.

Well, as a Certified Athletic Trainer, I am disgusted by this post...Part-time position? Seriously? You have no idea wha this job entails and it most certainly is not a part-time position. I am at my high school every day and some holidays working with teams at the varsity and junior varstiy levels; in 90 degree weather making sure these kids (parents, your children)are safe from getting seriously hurt, injured or even dying. I went to school for both my Bachelor's and Master's degree in my field so 6 years total, plus had to pass a national board certification exam and maintain continuing education every year...I am CPR and AED certified in adults, children, and infants, I have a full knowledge of the entire bodies working bones, muscles, ligaments, and joints. For you to think that $40,000 is a waste of money; I would like to see what you think if that money was taken away and your child died on the field because that athletic trainer was not there!

As the parent of two athletes in the Boone HS area, I do not think I could put a $ amount on Craig Moorehouse. He has always been available to my kids even at 6 am on saturdays after a late Friday night game. His knowledge and expertise to me as a parent is invaluable. Knowing that he cares for the athlete first and not the outcome of the sport is enough to justify his salary. IF you will notice I used my real name, not a fake name, there is no one named Sulpher springs, if you are going to post a negative comment and use the persons name, dont be a coward.
