Let's look at the trophy case and see how many trophies are in there from various sports. The burg also has something that ports will NEVER have and that's a state title in football
....and it is so sad that NO ONE KNOWS (OR CARES) outside of Scioto County!!!! These Burgites NEVER get tired of being LEGENDS IN THEIR OWN MINDS!!!

Let's hope the sports are one of the first cuts the schools make if Issue 2 fails to pass. Look at all the money that would save the schools in coaches pay and expenses of the sports teams to the schools. We can do without that easily.
I agree BUT

Don't be to hard on the snakes at least THEY SERVE A PURPOSE, we could do without a superintendent in each district... How about a County Superintendent and staff to just oversea all the rural school????
Good Idea

The savings here could be a very good one! The superintendent's Salary alone in the Burg would put 3 teachers back in the classroom!!

I don't understand why you are attacking this person when all he/she was doing was defending their school. You may have a problem with how things are being operated but that does not give you a right to criticize someone for taking pride in their school.

And if you are a parent, don't you think you should act like an adult and not use childish comebacks such as calling someone stupid. I mean I am almost 19 and you don't see me calling you stupid do you? Immitute maybe, but not stupid.

Also, not that I am defending the new stadium and the letting go of teachers, because I graduated last year and I knew and loved the teachers, but if you have such a big problem with it then you should do something about it instead of going on to a website just to complain.

According to my source the board and superintendent took money from the general fund, borrowed millions of dollars for a new stadium, laid off teachers and staff just to put up a 3 million dollar football stadium. Someone needs fired! Putting sports in front of academics just to satisfy the helmet heads in this community! When no one outside of Scioto county even cares about burg football.

They can take the sports teams to the front door of the events in school buses. But they make our kids walk five blocks to the bus stop and stand in the rain and cold.

The 1.9 Million was GIVEN to The Burg Board of Ed and said BUILD any building you want.. the state siad it could be a NEW LIBRARY, NEW PC LAB, BIOLOGY LAB, whatever, they ( the school board ) chose to use it to build a Sports stadium, put sports ahead of education. Secondly, The second bid was $550,000 more likiley will be $800,000.. Here's how that money WAS rumored to have came about.. That bid is for the Football fileds new ASTRO TRUF Rubberrized playing field.. It was told that about $200,000 came from the Eaton family in memory of John, secondly is it rumored that $200,000 came form the Board of Ed general fund.. I want to know where the remaining $400,00 for a rubberized playing field will come from??? Mark.. Now it's your turn.. YOU SET THE RECORD STRIGHT !!!!!!!!!! If in fact $200,00 was taken form the general fund every board memeber should be voted OUT.. That was Salary money for teachers, custodians, bus drivers aids ect...
Bigger city school charge a fee to play sports.. a simply $25 to each player for the sport they plan to play. That money pays the coaches salary and helps with other expences.. bus drivers to take the players to away games and such, gas for that bus etc.. If Your kid does not play sports why should their education money be used for astro truf and coaches salaries ? Again, Mark the BALL is now in YOUR COURT.. Lets PLAY BALL....

Education in America is a joke. I mean no one gets taught how to make a living! Besides, in public schools I dont think they can kick bad apples out, so wast of time til they make serious changes. I say get rid of more staff!

Ture it was a 1.9 upgrade BUT the board could have used the 1.9 for oh say a new library, new PC lab, any form of building project, but what did our school board decide to do??? Use it for a sports stadium.. Shame Shame Shame.. Loved the burg at one time, but now that I'm retiring, I'm looking at moving out of the town I once loved.. why because of stuff just like this.. What kind of a school board would opt to give 1.9 million to sports over education ? A STUPID ONE...

Have u seen the stadium? I've been inside the locker room. It's in HORRIBLE shape and close to bein condemned. The state said something had to be done or they can't play their home games there anymore
