NO...as long as there are board members that work there FOR FREE... parks cant do nothing to them..Just like in other post on here every one wants to complain and not do nothing else...Ive been up on the hill for many years and see what goes on...The meetings they have is open ...If you want to see where the money goes just ask at the conssion stand they have a detailed report.. they operate on a small buget...The county judge gives them around $2200 a year, by the time you pay their sponsership to the kids that cant afford it ,the league end up paying $500 to $1000 on top of that just to let them play...Like I said,go to there meeting and get involed.

They can start their own league. I think that would kill your business and then you could allow flowers to grow on that mine field you call a football field.

I want to see were they are going to get the money to start one. Dewayne is good but not that good..Besides why dont they take over baseball,soccer,or any other sport in Jessamine Co if it was that easy??? Stay in Lexington where parants want to fight at games.Everybody says its for the kids..B.S. is what that is. Some reason its about the coaches and whos on top..

ONLY in Lexington I remember seeing the Police walk one of the cheerleading coaches off the field because she was high! She was high!!!! By the way they do run soccer and basketball!!!Yes I said it they do!!! Get off the coaches my boy had an excellent coach. Try coming up with another excuse and I'll get back with ya on that one too.

I'm not saying all coaches are bad ,just a few.There are a lot of coaches that are real good at what they do. I dont know what team your kid played on but I'm glad that both of you like playing for him. Elections are in 2009 at the football field lets get involed and change some faces and what goes on up there. Right now if every thing goes to plan they might be moving the football field on out to Richmond Ave where the soccer complex is. Hopefuly it will workout. Did your kid get to play in the after season games that went on???

I am thinking you are thinking of someone else. The Richmond Ave park is where I was told by Mr. McCuddy that he would be starting a league. I dunno but can you tell me this? Is it only a rumor or did RJ Corman offer to rebuild the field? I have been told both ways and do not know who to believe.

Its been a rumor. I know there have been messages over the years left for him, but he never responded to them so I wouldnt know for sure. Just like Applebees was getting a new score board for the field this year. I dont know what happen to that??? I'm going to run for a board member spot and talk to McCuddy about moving the field. I think it will help us out in the long run and get the numbers back up. Only time will tell. I've been a coach for 3 years in the Sr. league and we got great kids through out. What team did your boy play on? I don't have a beef with no one I just want to get some input and ideas from people. I ran across this topex board by accadent

I would to say if the coaches/board members are as useless in football as they are in baseball it is no wonder Jessamine Co. can't compete with Lex and the other surrounding counties! Coaches that know little or nothing about the game coaching little Johnny as it was a Sunday game in a cow pasture for fun. I am an avid supporter of all Jess.Co. sports but this kills me to see this happen just because we needed that person to take a team due to the low response of qualified coaches. Board members not knowing the rulings on the field as well as being able to correct an issue or issues of the same magnitude or different in similarities, not 2 of them can tell the same story or get the ruling correct. You have to be one of those "GOOD OL BOY'S" AND IN GOOD STANDING WITH THE GANG", OR AT LEAST SOME OF THEM.Does the Parks and Rec need to take over? that would be something worth discussing cause something has to be done in baseball, we are losing all the talent here in the county going to other places to play all because of the poor coaches/board members!!!!!!!!!

There is a diffance in Baseball and football...Football you have to vote and elect the person you see fit to be a board member.. Baseball its who knows who to get in.
I'm just here for football...Baseballs not my cup of tea. But if I had kids playing I would some how get involed.

The Hill is a good place to make a kid hate football. The people in charge are terrible. My kids played there several years. The short fat ref Johnny is the nephew of Donnie Sr. and the cousin of Donnie Jr. His blatant bias calls ensure Donnie Jr.'s team wins if at all possible. They should all 3 be ran off along with the rest of the good ole boys. Jessamine co. youth football needs to start from scratch without influence from this bunch. It may need to relocate to do this. As for open meetings don't kid yourself. As for money there is a lot of cash going in but I never see where it goes. Sign-up fees, admission, consessions (I have worked consessions and seen a lot of CASH come in during a single game), cookie dough sales, and each team must be "sponsored" which is $350. You do the math. I have seen coaches endanger kids by running them in full pads when temp over 90 degrees. Run them into each other at full speed day after day with no reguard for size or skill "to toughen em up". These are only few examples. I could go on all day about how poorly this league is but the point is this. There are a lot of kids in our community who would play league football if there were a better venue than currently exists on the hill. A new league that promoted fare play, skill development and good sportmaship would be refreshing. It would also improve the future of our high school programs because more kids would continue playing instead of becoming disheartened by the good ole boy way. If you don't know who the good ole boys are just mention starting a new or different youth football program. Our kids deserve better.

Yes Hard Worker in football you do vote for the president BUT when the president counts the votes, who wins? I applaud them for starting the league 30 some odd years ago but it has past them by. New blood and ideas are needed.

I'm not trying to be smart but you could start a new tread and get better feed back on the topic. Here in the next few days I will post the end of year report on what was spent and what was made at football.

Yeah things aren't always right but i don't think there is a big conspiracy. Some of you are just mad because your kid would rather chase butterflies when it's their turn to run a ball or block for their man!

I was involved for a great number of years with a little league football program. I can tell you from experience that the board members typically stay the same. That is fact. The reason is though that the rest of the complainers realize that they would lose their job complaining if they actually stepped up and became involved with the program.

If you don't like the way it is running then go to the meetings and then show up 2 hours before the games start (that is the 1st game not your game) and then stay until an hour or two AFTER the games are all over and help clean up!! Then you will start to get a fill of what is going on.

Volunteer to buy a load of dirt and fill in the holes in the field, they won't mind. I promise.

Go and volunteer to pull 2 or 3 hours a week in the concession stand, do your part and then you can complain if you still feel like you have a complaint. But you won't have time for all that you will be to busy answering all the complaints from other. You see you will be on the other side of the fence.

I became involved by encougargment from others that didn't like the way a program run. After I became involved I seen the LIGHT. You can't just show up on game day...you have to work all week, month....no all year long.

So Good Luck on your placement on the BOARD!!
