How do you think the Mountain Home Tigers varsity football team will do this season?
 They'll have a winning season
 They'll win a few and lose a few
 They'll have another losing season
 It's too early to tell
 I don't follow high school sports

Not guilty and innocent are 2 different things.

Why is the city digging up existing handicap sidewalk access points when there are numerous sidewalks that don't have one?

So I find it very interesting but not surprised that there is no article about the football game last week. Last year the newspaper had the article all but published before the first game was over. Why am I not surprised well a few months ago the paper decided to put a gentleman on blast over a preliminary trail. The reporter told me that he was "just reporting the facts" After the actual trail where this gentleman was found innocent of all charges and the courts proved that the "facts" that were reported in the news paper were false, I asked the reporter to write a retraction. Well the retraction never happened. Is it because you don't want to admit you were trying to make the man look bad or is it because you don't want to admit you were wrong. As I stated I am not surprised.

I haven't seen any complaining about the football program yet. This time last year the public wanted the coach fired after one lose. Why not this year something change, nope they lost even with the "savior" coaching staff. It has to be because the coach is "local". Not only did they lose but they lost by more than last year. 2015: 51-8, 2014: 33-49. Well I will just say I am BACK to complain about the program and the staff since no one wants to because they are afraid of being banished from the program. I could care less about being banished simply because I was smart and got my kid outta there! He is now playing for a program that cares. So let's take a look at the game, we know the score 51-8 and the staff will tell you how good the team looked, yes the boys did play their hearts out but the staff just did not know what to do. Turnovers, sacks, and more penalty yards than offensive yards, that's not players that coaching issues. Hey coach, when you run two of the same play in a row and lose 10 yards, don't run it again, it's not working but you still did and lost 9 yards and the football. Um any coach knows that, its football 101. Well until next week I will leave you with this, the two coaches that were passed over because they were part of the "status quo/loser" staff are doing well one is 2-0 with his team and the other is 1-0 with his team. Looks like someone made the right choice. Until next week!

Thank you for commenting and please take your discussion on the school district and voting to the political column rather than the banter box. Thank you again. B

District has my YES vote, who else will pay for school upkeep? Typical teabaggers, want total Somalia anarchy, no government. Who then is going to take care of the country's infrastructure? Surely not big business.

Mr.427539 Crawl back in your teabag hole, you sure do whine alot.

From now on I DON'T GIVE A DANG WHAT THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT WASTES, AS I GUESS MOST TAX PAYER'S DON'T EITHER. I will vote NO for each and every time they beg for money.

My NO cancels your yes :) I also like the green grass as I believe they are under contract and get paid the same whether they cut it once a week or 3.
