  • no where does the national weather service predict or say there will be a blizzard.. and they say 7-14 + inches of snow will fall can anyone get anything freaking right?!

  • THEY ARE SAYING BLIZZARD LIKE CONDITIONS BECAUSE OF WIND….
    SO HE GOT IT FREAKING RIGHT!!

  • thats because there were no charges…just crazy parents

  • The parent who claimed her son was “bullied” by the coach (buzz word of the moment) misconstrued the coach’s demands for hard work, mental toughness, and discipline…all ingredients of a winning program, a successful player and eventually a thriving adult. We are raising a bunch of wimps.

  • Thank You Board, or at least the once that voted Yes. Let me take a wild guess here. The one board member that didn’t vote last night is probably the same person not wanting Dr Copel to come back.
    We need to be a lot more careful who we vote in on this board from know on!! This is a 60 million dollar a year business that is being run, This is not a plane!!! We need to wake up!!! We need business people running this school.

  • Known the family for many years and their children have never had any issues with their coaches. If her son says this happened then it indeed happened. Some coaches are questionable at best when it comes to their style and the parents who support a coach who treats his players this way and a school board who cow tows to the ridiculous screaming parents is just setting itself up for disaster. The only thing your ignorance breeds is more ignorance.

  • We are also clad you don’t live here anymore!!! Because i am sure you where one of the NO votes every year…

  • i find it amazing that parents are still attempting to get rid of this coach after almost 10yrs!!!There has to be some validity to these parent’s concerns,one left in 2007,one more to go!!!
