Thanks for saying what many of us are thinking. I think Chris Duerr should no longer be allowed on CCR1 Property. His boss is from Kahoka, and I don’t believe she would support him bashing us. He has made comments in the past and its time he report the news and keep his opinions to himself. Although rumor has it a coach has made a fool out of himself in front of the students complaing about this to Mr. Dooley. Not sure what kind of a role model a person like that makes anyway. So was Chris prompted to say this? Would be interesting to know more.

Awesome! I mean Awesome! (My Turn) I am so glad that you wrote that for thepaper. Well written and well said. We are so lucky to have such a greatband director and talent kids. It’s a activity Field not a Athletic Field and we allpay for that. I have nothing against sports either.
Thanks again and for sticking up for us.

There’s more to life than sports…

Way to speak out Mike! I am behind you all the way. All of the taxpayers pay for that field. Band parents pay admission to watch the band perform at the football games just like the football parents. How much money is generated from taxpayers and spectators that have no football player affiliation? We stand together as a community with all of our activities/teams, not as individual teams in competition with each other. We are proud of our football players, band students, coaches and band instructors.

Don’t forget the 2001 Missouri State Bowling Championship a group of high school students–the Horsemen–brought to Kahoka.

Read with interest the above column and below comments – everyone is up in the air because someone dare question the school.
Now, let’s consider the facts:
Unemployment is 15 percent in Clark County; businesses have closed; young people are leaving the county for employment; women in Afghanistan are setting themselves on fire due to abusive marriages; soldiers are murdered at Fort Hood.
One person expresses his opinion which is still allowed in this country – freedom of speech until the administration in Washington outlaws that.
So now what is important?

Yes, there are more things important than football and a band contest…I agree. However, our town has the right to stand up for itself and not let an opinion of a SPORTS caster run us over. His opinions were over the line. We all would have a hard time changing the world..or the unemployment situations in Clark COunty, but as parents and supporters of BOTH Sports Boosters and Fine Arts Boosters, we do try to make a difference in the lives of our children.

I agree with completely with the last letter writer. The parents and people of Clark County are well noted for giving and giving to their children.
And the children in turn are noted for their high standards and principles and giving back to the community that supports them.
