Archery Program Dropped @ HCHS

Postby Guest » Wed Nov 24, 2010 10:13 am

Why did HCHS drop the archery program this year? We had a excellent team last year. I guess if it's not a sport that Tim Saylor likes it gets dropped

Does anyone remember all the promises that were made regarding new sports programs being added when the consolidation controversy was going on? I distinctly remember archery being used as an example and many kids were excited about it. It would be interesting to list the things that have been promised but not delivered or taken away since the school has been opened. I'd say there were parents who supported the consolidation ONLY because of those promises.

Regarding
the mosque near ground zero, I say let them build it. But across the
street, we should put a topless bar, called "You Mecca Me Hot". Next to
that, a gay bar called "The Turban Cowboy" next to that, a pork-rib
restaurant called "Iraq o' Ribs", and a check cashing center called
........................"Iran out of money"

I think its really sad tht the program was dropped. Alot of kids were really interested and participated in the program. Also they learned alot that we can use right here in the mtns. in out everyday lives.

This is a shame. A lot of the kids really liked it. This may be the beginning of more programs ending too.

Who decides which programs are "worthy" of keeping?

The Saylor family gets together once a month or so and makes these decisions... Just like in the forties, and fifties, and sixties, right on through... Harlan county schools have only had one ruling family since the depression... I could tell you stories...

Bad news for those who enjoyed the Archery Program. Good news for the deer population.

They already got the consolidation, so now they can get rid of the programs they used to help justify it.

I think this is absolutely bull$hit! Not all students want to play football, basket ball, track or some other BS sport that the old school bunch think are the only ones that are worth having.

I thinik that there should be as many different outlets for students to persue outside class as possible and give the entire student body a chance to fit in and excell in their chosen sport.

I was glad that the archery program had been implemented and upset that it has been dropped. If the parents of children who want the program would stand up and protest the program being dropped, maybe it could be reinstated.

I agree Bushwhacker..Start a petition to get it reinstated. Do a letter to the editor. Get the news involved. Ask questions demand answers. Stand up for the program or if not for that then stand up for your children.

I can't help but remember the petitions gathered and meetings that were held regarding the consolidation. Many people learned the hard way, we have no say what so ever except at election time.

I still believe that the superintendent's position should be an elected seat.
