  • Betsy I realize that the people of the old RV feel that they have been slighted but The people of Twin Valley and Beaver Valley had to loose all their honors and Trophies too. Yes maybe RV had more Volleyball Trophies but those years are not forgotten. Believe me. Some of us hear about them on a daily basis.

  • No one had to lose anything. I have not spoken to one individual that can figure out the logic behind not incorporating the visual history in the school.

    Let me use an illustration. If there is a "blended" family - a mom and dad both having previous family history- they don't throw away the family history so the ONLY history starts the day of the "new" marriage. It makes no sense what-so-ever. Why not celebrate the achievements? I am glad you are hearing the about the success everyday and I hope whoever is in your ear - keeps that up.

    While I specified volleyball because that is where our family's focus was - there are a lot of other recognitions that should not have been kicked to the curb. The history is visualized by the trophies. Again, you have to know where you have been to get where you are going.

  • All from Redwillow feel they were sold out by Indianola voters but amazing to me they agreed to have new school placed in Bartley when to serve district fairly placing in Indianola vs Barley and Bartley was dead in water. If they done it right they should have had it all in Indianola and still picked up some McCook kids. Oh well with class sizes getting smaller because of RedWillow defections to McCook and no one coming to Bartley from McCook i think Cambridge and McCook will pick up the Southwest student pieces in years ahead and taxpayers pay for a empty building in bartley just like the old Red Willow sits empty today.
