At least the Seniors stuck it out and didn't quit and run to another school because things didn't suit them like so many others. These Seniors have shown a lot of character playing through tough times because they love the game unlike the coward posters who come on topix and trash people. Get a life and leave these kids alone, they have more character and determination than you ever dreamed of having. It will serve them well in life after they graduate.

And another thing, these Seniors will all graduate high school, go on to college, and likely have successful careers. That's more than we can say about 90% of the people who post on this trash website. In ten years, no one will even be talking about WU basketball scores in 2011-2012. There are bigger things in life than high school basketball and small town WU trash talking. Proud of these kids for never quitting and representing our school with class.

There won't be 5 graduate from college that come from ADOV Schools!
Ball DOES NOT help anyone except for the same families that get the scholarships year after year and generation after generation.
Ball should be paid for by the parents that want to relive their high school days.
In ten years most will be in jail or snitching on people to keep out of jail and on SSI that play ball.
Sick of my money paying for ball!!!!!!!!
I feel sorry for the kids that have to help the parents relive H.S.
Grow up!
You get a life!

I agree with you on supporting the kids that play ball at West Union. But just because other kids left and went to another school does not make them a quitter. They finished their year out at West Union. They are still playing ball. I think the smart ones are the ones that left. West Union doesn't seem like it will ever change. If a coach starts making changes that certain parents do not like then they go run to the the principle. The principle backs the parent usually (if its the right parent).

A poster wrote the seniors are the ones coaching. Well maybe the parents and players need to let Rymer coach. Even if that means not starting the seniors and winning some games.

Rymer is scared of the seniors just like last year. You cant have a coach that was a benchwarmer through highschool and us only 21 or 22. I mean seniors are 18 but thats wu basketball and ur right the kids who left was smart and they didnt quit they were both KICKED OFF. And also the same families do get the scholarships every year! So know the whole truth before u start tellin other people to get lives

For the record, basketball is the only sport that supports itself financially and with pay to participate, your tax dollars are not paying for the sport. I am guessing you are not willing to pay for education either based on your post. If so, vote for a levy to pass. Oh wait that would mean that you have to think about someone other than yourself. ninety nine percenter of selfishness is my read on you!

I don't disagree that some families struggle with re-living their high school days through their kids which is sad and it goes on at every school. I don't think that is the case with every family however. Many of these families care about all the kids and their school which is why they donate money and volunteer their time while some only care about themselves and only want to start trouble and complain. Be a part of the solution and stop contributing to the problem.

Anyone who didn't remain loyal to their school or quit playing basketball because they couldn't handle the difficult situation at WU has "quit" on their school and themselves. If a kid decided they no longer wanted to play that sport and didn't come back, I can respect that decision. Some quit because they couldn't handle losing or felt they got mistreated or had a better chance to win at another school, that is quitting. Not everything in life is going to go your way and you can't just quit or run to greener pastures everytime the going gets tough. I admire the kids that stuck with West Union through very difficult times. This is true character and loyalty to your school and team mates.

As far as graduating college and scholarships, these Seniors will pay for most if not all of their college by hard working families and student loans, not a free ride by any means. They will get their degree and be productive citizens unlike many in our county who sit back and let the system take care of them and then complain about everyone else. I have my facts straight and support our school whether we win or lose!!

Voting No on the tax levy and more money does not mean better education!

Ball does not support itself! The bus cost money to run them back and forth especially through the holidays!

I support the kids.

I am paying taxes!
I don't like how they are being used!!!!!!!!!!

VOTE NO ON TAXES!!!!!!!!!!
bad teaching

From what I am reading the parents are not teaching the children any more than the teachers.

Sore losers! Suck it up losers!

Teach the children to be adults - good ones. No wonder the majority of kids end up on the gravy train look at what you are teaching them.......

Whiner!

Voting no does not mean you do not support education. When your property taxes come due look at how much is going to education now. Many people can not afford to pay more and many want the school to quit wasting money. Why do they keep rehiring ex-principles?

Going to another school does not make them quitters if they finished their season. Sometimes change is the right choice. If you know you will learn more and have better experiences why not? This is smart. Just like employment. No one expects someone to stay working the same job for years and turn down better opportunities.

I think volunteers are great if they are doing it for the right reasons. Some volunteer to try to get the best deal for their kid. We all know coaches that coach only to get their kid more playing time and look out for their kids interests and not the interest of the team.

ABC,

I get it, I wasn't referring to someone getting kicked off the team. That is a whole different topic.

It bothers me when someone comes on here like a coward and starts criticizing the kids that stuck with it and throw flames at everyone from the coach to the athletic director to the janitor but yet do nothing to try and support or help the situation. If you are not a basketball fan, fine, but don't knock a positive thing that keeps kids focused on getting better grades, teaches life lessons, and keeps them out of trouble. Either you support the kids or you keep your opinion to yourself.

As long as I pay taxes I will say exactly what I want when it comes to where most of my tax money is going.

The entire school system needs to be restructured.

Voting no on any tax levy until it gets cleaned up.

I support the kids financially and I am sick and tired of paying for anything that is extra curricular. Waste of time and money.

I would love to be able to take my tax dollars with me to another school district! I would see that the money went for educating the kids!

Hopefully there aren't any adults on here bashing the kids, no matter the decisions of coaches, parents or themselves. They are just kids.

Second, if you really want to help the kids, vote no on the school levy's. All extra money goes to supporting a corrupt teachers union that cares more about lining the pockets of union leadership and politicians than helping teachers or students.

This isn't a political statement at all, it's about supporting kids over union greed. Check out the movie documentary "Waiting For Superman" on Netflix you be glad you did.

I think you missed the point. Merely defending the kids that have stuck with the program through hard times not starting a tax debate on our education system. A school board position is now open, maybe you should consider running in order to bring change?
