My last word on this particular subject, and this is to clarify. I am very happy that the Student Athletes of Big Foot are having a banner sports year and I also agree that they deserve every each inch of press ink their sucess can garner including "Breaking" on-line stories. Proud Parent, Dave and McRib miss my point, I am not begrudging anyone their "15 Minutes " of fame, I am disappointed with the lack of support by the "hometown" paper in giving the same coverage to the local high school. This has nothing to do with anything other than the sports editor's inability to be objective and offer bi-partisan and equal coverage of local sports for all three high schools the LGRN covers. The elation an athlete gets by seeing their name in print about their accomplishment is one I would like all high school athletes to enjoy, but double that emotion in the opposite direction when your accomplishments have been ignored, or made to feel your accomplishment is lessworthy, that is my complaint with LGRN sports department. If you would like further explination phone number is in the book call me and we can have a nice chat over a cup of coffee or whatever. BTW did you know this is the 4th year in a row for the Equestrian team of Badger High to win the State Championship
