School board’s decision a disappointing one [UPDATED]

As a high school senior, I have mixed thoughs on the school board’s vote on having a trap shooting team.

For one, it’s horrible timing because of the recent gun crimes that have slamed the country.

Second, do you, the school board, have any clue on how many people you disappointed by making this decision?

    Maybe since trap shooting has been an Olympic sport for every Summer Olympics since the 50s and a few prior to that, it’s not such a bad thing. Maybe Fergus has some Olympians!

    As a high school senior you should be able to spell better. How did they disappoint people? I for one am very happy to see this as a new sport that a lot of other cities in the state are doing as well. I wish I would have had this option as I was just horrible in football and basketball. Good for the School Board on this one.
