How is changing our name going to fix anything. It's like calling milk orange juice. It's still milk. Leave it alone. It should be the studnets and the current student to decide what they want to graduate as. I want to be an Tomah Indian.

i think it is all nonsense. They should just pick a name it doesn't really matter.

I think that in the end the nickname does not mater as long as the slogan is cool. The nickname should be something fun though like blueberry pie.

LOL! They're at it again! I was in the 1st 6th grade class that they had in the Jr.High way back when and they tried to make us change our name than! But we didn't think of anything cool like the "blueberry pie" or anything instead they tried to make us into the "Tomah Green Dimonds" lol what a joke. Anyone know what "Tomah" means? LOL hello it the name of a chief. An indian chief!!!! What is so offensive about the name of town that has been around forever and so has the name. People come on there are children starving in our alleys and the most important thing to you is what a towns high school nickname is? That's a shame I truely pitty some of these people. I'm sorry for you.
