Sounds like the first day of school cant come fast enough! Thsts too bad- it is a really pretty sign too. The city did a good job remodeling that area.

If they catch the kids who did it, punish them, unless they are football players - then let them off so they can play all their games and then throw a parade in their honor

Rockford = an athletic programs with a city and a couple of classrooms attached to it, populated by pushy parents - most of whom are delusional enough to think their kid will be the next Michael Jordan. And we pay our taxes to subsidize their kids' athletic careers

I think all high schools are like Rockford.
I graduated 2 years ago and 8 out of the 10 kids in my class's top 10 smoked marijuana on a daily basis.
They were going to do drug testing for the athletes, but even the athletic director said, "no", to that idea because we wouldn't have any teams!
