    DASD Superintendent ... What’s up?

    And there's a reason DuBois is looking for a new one, they didn't hire a good one.

    The only real reason to go to county school districts would be to consolidate and save a large amount of money. The county districts wouldn't be saving any money if they were still paying for all of the buildings on a daily basis. The only money you would save would be the cost of the super.

    The contributions are based on a number value for each student that decides to go to the technical school. It's not a set value.

    DASD Superintendent ... What’s up?

    Do you want your child to have to ride a bus or drive to their school in Clearfield daily? If the state went to entire "county" districts, they would consolidate to one middle and high school (much like Armstrong County did not long ago) and most likely locate it in Clearfield. Imagine living right on the Clearfield county line on Wayne Road and having to drive to Clearfield in the winters every day, personally I wouldn't want my child to have to commute like that.

    I believe the Krach's were actually the owners of the Original Hoagie Shop

    The truth always comes out. But in my opinion, good riddance.

    Every employee is entitled their confidentiality. It doesn't matter if you're a toilet scrubber or the superintendent. The story and facts will come out when it's legal for them to.

    D1 athletics is a business. Coaches are paid to win games, PERIOD. Anyone who thinks those coaches care about how their players do in the classroom is on another planet. All the coach cares about is if their player is eligible to compete, after that they could care less. After they are done using their skills for four years, they most likely could care less what they do. Coaches have to gain some sort of a competitive edge. It is never too early for them to begin recruiting a player. If they don't recruit them, somebody else will.

    You can't compare any Little League success to higher men's baseball success such as high school. Unfortunately, many areas do not have strong LL programs anymore. Travel ball has taken that over because of the better competition. Yes, 12 year old little league on TV looks very strong and fun to watch. DuBois has a nice program up to 12 years old, however when the players hit 13 and up, the competition is garbage. I believe some of the teams that made the 15-16 year old state tournament this year never had to play a game. C'mon now, zero games and you're in the state championships? As for high school, that is a time where you have a lot of the players that left the little league system and rejoin their friends on a team. These kids that played travel ball most likely played anywhere from 50-100 games a year, where the strictly little league players may have played 20. There is a big gap at this point and when push comes to shove, the more advanced players play. Unfortunately, in these days, if a kid doesn't start on a team, he or she quits. Kids don't understand the meaning of a team or role player, they all want to be a star. Well sorry buddy, not everyone is a star and not everyone is a D1 athlete. I can't remember the last time DuBois had a true D1 prospect. We have had a couple to go some smaller D1 schools, but nothing big. We can blame the coaches for not teaching the "little things", however if you don't have players that commit and buy into the process, they won't be coachable and will be nothing but a cancer for the program. I have seen some local teams do really well over the years with coaches that never played the game or knew very little. Does that make them good coaches?

    What the heck is going on in our schools!!

    This was clearly tasteless and a bad moral decision, but what law did this teacher break? You can't just fire a teacher and pull their retirement because of a tasteless act. They will have to find something wrong legally.
