"the officers saw teens drinking alcohol and playing beer pong."

Does this mean that the SWCS BOE will threaten to cut "beer pong" if voters don't approve the next school levy?

If you took the time, you would know the truth, not your warped version. You, are either blinded to the truth or a liar, because the truth makes you angry. I however, am brutally honest. I can say, I have NEVER spread lies. You show your ignorance every time you post. Every time you criticize the BOE I will continue to call you out on your BS. I do not care about your opinion, or the opinion of others. You are a hater.

Let me give the interviews. This district is ran like Animal House. No Brains !!!!! These are my answers.

Fifteen South-Western City Schools athletes were disciplined by the district for underage drinking at an Aug. 29 house party, according to district spokeswoman Sandy Nekoloff.

My response
"No comment, We want to respect all involved"

"It's my understanding that after speaking with the high school principal, he has already taken the appropriate disciplinary action," Nekoloff said.

My response
"No comment, We want to respect all involved"

No comment No comment No comment Levy University oops NO COMMENT

Lot of folks feeling the significant financial hurt from the past levy increase that allowed these boys the opportunity to play again. Sure let a lot of folks and their team down. Hopefully themselves too.

We need to make a change here in Grove City..First Alumni drinking and
fighting..now underage drinking by our students and athletes...I understand
there are parties but I would think if there were 39 kids at a house party
with no parents at home with alcohol and drugs, I would think our team captains would make the judgement to leave, taking his team mates with
him...Come on Grove City lets show some class!

In the aftermath of last years controversial school levy battle, the SWCS BOE, the administration, Grove City residents, and including students, should avoid doing things that draw negative publicity to themselves. I'm not satisfied with Nekeloffs response.

Nekoloff has no brain. She is a trained parrot that spouts what she is told to spout by central office administration.

I heard recently that the team has 111 members that we outfit with uniforms, etc. My first question was - how do 111 kids play on a football team over the course of a single season?

Obviously, it's doubtful they'll play at all but that Pay to Play fee is all important, no?

You want kids to be more responsible than adults? Not surprising. Adults will put 111 kids on a football team KNOWING that not all of them will even play at anything but practice. But kids should be more responsible? Righto.

I think the article missed the fact that several kids ran and were not caught. Well at least they got to play on Friday.

Extra Time on our Hands

We also know that teens are most likely to engage in risky behavior, including vandalism, violent crime and sexual activity during these hours (Cohen, Farley,Taylor, Martin, & Schuster, 2002; Fox, 1996; Newman, Fox,Flynn, & Christeson, 2000). Given the increased risks facing many youth, as well as their need for educational support, there is growing concern that young teens need greater access to constructive afterschool activities.

Did the district cause this problem? These behavior patterns are learned. Did they pick up these bad habits when there we no extras? Studies say it's a strong possibility.

I am not making excuses for the students. It should be a private matter and handled as such. Hopefully everyone learns something positive and the same mistakes are not made again. I can't help but wonder if they learned the habits last year.
