Good for you Keath! My daughter is a straight A student, who plays clarinet and tenor saxophone in the high school band, and I have often wondered the same thing. Why do the athletes at the high school get way more press coverage than other groups, like band, debate, academics, etc? In response to lgmillernl, I don't think Keith is being critical of sports players, he is being critical of the media's lack of coverage of other programs. Also, there have been numerous studies involving the effects of studying music on brain development. All these studies have shown that children who study music (i.e. piano lessons, school band, etc) perform better in many academic areas, especially math. Keath is merely stating the facts. Here is a link to an article about one of these studies: http://www.socyberty.com/Education/Do… The bottom line is that all the students involved in various programs at the high school deserve recognition and coverage equally, and the newspaper is not doing that. Kudos to you Keath for bringing this to their attention.

As a parent of 3 children at three different schools in this district, I so happy that we are getting some new blood in the system. I am especially excited that Mr. Petrone has a more “worldly” view going into this job. I grew up in a military family and attended most of my school years in a foreign country, so I have a different perspective on things. Because of his experience, I think Mr. Petrone will bring a much needed change to the district. I wish him the best in his new position.
Good Job Moffat County School board!!

They are the Demons. You would think the sports writer would know the correct mascot name for the school. Mr. Vandelinder should have checked this article before printing it.

My apologies “dogfan”— I misunderstood your sentence. I just felt that you were a little harsh on her. Come on, she's only a kid. She's coming from a very small, sheltered community here in Craig. So, college sports was harder than she expected and she opted out. I think there is way too much emphasis put on sports today anyway, so I am happy that she is concentrating on her academics. I have three children in the MCSD who are all honor roll students. My oldest daughter attends MCHS, plays two instruments —very well— and is an “A” student. She doesn't get even close to the recognition she and others like her deserve, compared to the athletes at the school. My point in writing was to give kudos to Markie for choosing to continue her education, albeit at a different school, and still have basketball IN her life, and not BE her life.

I don't fault her at all. Her main priority is going to school, and playing basketball on the side. Good for her. It sounds like she made the right decision. I wish her luck; and by the way, if you are going to insult someone, at least learn how to spell. The word is “here”, not “hear”.
