Seriously, the "Mallards"? Anybody else think the School board is pushing for the whole "Mifflin County Patriots" that was being rumored around the county a looooooooooooooooong time ago, so they decide to put these other "top suggestions" on the ballot? Another ballot where your votes won't matter, it will be announced "Mifflin County Patriots" regardless of voting results. They've pushed everything else through without caring about the public/student's opinion, why will this be any different?

That's what I told my daughter. I'd be shocked if it were anything other than the Patriots. Everything else that was being rumored years ago has come true so I'm sure this is just a face-saving measure but these decision were made long ago.

So you think it will be the Mifflin County Patriots with red white and blue?

That's better than the Freedom Forge Mallards.

That's what I think, but I thought the colors I had heard a year or more ago had silver in them.

Those food stamps put weight on people, and there is a lot of HUSKY people in Mifflin County.

You are down right mean. I hope you never lose all that you have and need to receive from your fellow man. Not all the people in our county are bums.

It's because they're going to "dog" the taxpayers.

Well, I'll admit I am shocked. I'm not a big fan of the name choice but in the grand scheme of things the name and colors are really irrelevant to the students receiving what they're there for - a good education.

If you were as good at getting things right, as you are at being wrong,( where you just got all four wrong,) You should play the Lottery and get off the Government handouts that you are on..

Oh, and bye the way Milroy,( The other JunkE ), If you was trying to make-up a profile of reliefers, You missed that he/she would have Government paid TATTOO'S all over their body.

And you can add they probably, or most likely, do DRUGS.

Another thing that you might want to put on the reliefer profile is their driving days are over at $4.00/gal gasoline unless they can sell enough of their food stamps, or do enough stealing to pay for gas.
