This article is disturbing in so many ways. Shouldn't there be transparency with these elected positions? I find it troubling that a mayor would be holding back "violations" Why would you do that to the tax payers of your community. Beginning to understand why Mabton has all these problems!!
Have I been missing something? I haven't seen much in the paper about the baseball team. I didn't even know they played that many games. It looks like they haven't been winning much, but they do deserve to be reported on as it looks like they have had some close games. They are our community and school representatives in this sport and they deserve to be recognized. Please have the AD or the coach report the games to you. The kids deserve it! Besides, it should be part of the coaches job! If you don't want to report it, give the duty to someone else on the staff. Go Grizz!
That town seems to be full of deep ugly issues from their government to their sports teams. Its a shame.
Good job to the Vikings! It seems like they had a great season and should be proud of their accomplishments. Just a suggestion here. The coach says that the officials didn't adapt to their style of play. Most of the time it is the team that has to make the adjustment, not the official. I am not saying that it is fair, but sometimes you have to roll with the punches. Great season anyway.
What about the volleyball team who are just as bad, what about the soccer team that is struggling as well. It is not just football bigfan, it is everything.The only sport that has been consistent is wrestling. The problem is bigger than just the football coach.
I understand what you are saying big fan. It is heart breaking to see that these kids cannot even be competitive, and you can't really put the blame on them. The problem is, as I see it, is they don't let their athletes be athletes. They are on the bench, or play very limited time. It is not always the biggest or tallest or fastest that makes a good football player. Be ready for a long season. Good luck boys!
That has to do with the council not the mayor. Nah, there is something fishy here. Didn't she run a few years ago?
Great Job Grizzlies!! This team sure deserves it! this is one of those instances that you can truly be proud of the girls that are representing our community and school. You hear all these horror stories about other teams with grade problems, players in detention or suspended, and just not representing their schools and communities well, yet still allowed to play. You cannot say that about this team! They are strong academically, very polite and courteous young ladies that have their priorities straight. Good job to the coaches teachers and administrators and especially the parents for towing the line and holding everyone accountable! Enjoy the ride and bring home the title. You can say the same thing about the wrestling team that placed really high at their state tournament. You are doing something right in Sunnyside, we are proud of you1
Well done and well deserved!! George Paulus gets it. As a former Grizzly, I am so proud of this man. Others in the coaching circle need to pick his brain. You can learn a lot about leadership, accountability, holding his staff and athletes accountable, and teaching his sport through motivation, discipline and technique. The icing on the cake will be the 2014 state championship. I am looking forward to watching the Grizzly wrestlers take a shot at capturing the title and with George at the helm, it gives them the best chance to get it. We'll be following the team!
