Do HS sports teach values?
I live in Jamestown and pay a small fortune in school taxes every year. Today I was solicited by 2 strong healthy boys in JHS baseball uniforms as I was entering a local store. They held out plain unlabelled boxes and asked me for money. I asked "Are you begging"..one didn't hesitate to say "yes".I told him that if he needs money for whatever purposes he should earn it,get a job,sell something of value.When I left the store these same 2 kids approached me again..again I told them to get a job.As I drove away these kids hurled insults and profanity at me. I called the school asst. principal and the school athletic director..I left messages on their voice mail..I doubt if I will get a response. What are these "responsible" adults teaching these kids? How to beg and be dependent on handouts..teaching these kids that they are "entitled" and don't have to make an effort to earn their way? HEY COACH..what in the world are you thinking? IM disgusted..
