Nice.  So your son is now a veterinarian?  

No, although he considered that vocation. He is a dairy farmer, all thanks to getting his start in animal husbandry. He started out milking bulls and now he makes a living milking cows.

You milk a cow, you get a bucket of milk

You milk a bull, you get a friend for life

It’s an art form, so I am told, but you probably need to start slowly....good manners if nothing else....warm hands help too.

No doubt they’ll be appreciative.

Bob.

The pay stinking is a given.  But the pay has stunk for years.  I doubt it is the reason that so many young people are not choosing the officiating route.

I’m not so sure. It’s a different generation of people we’re recruiting now. I suspect some of the old “truths” no longer apply.

Conventional wisdom has been that no one becomes an official to make $$. Most years I was happy to break even on out of pocket expenses. But that conventional wisdom may no longer be true.

They often prefer small talk prior to.......also having the bull stand in front of a mirror, during, makes eye contact possible. The eye contact fosters a better sense of intimacy, which helps tremendously in the process. Also, DO NOT ATTEMPT without first warming the hands. 

And to think, I would have none of that knowledge had I not persuaded my son to choose animal husbandry over soccer.

So long as we are talking about Warsaw...it doesn't happen overnight.  But it's not unimaginable (see New Pal).  Still...takes some time.

My personal opinion is that Snider/New Pal 2015 could have given ANYONE a fight.

In the case of New Pal, it started in 2013.  Snider has always been pretty great.

Nothing happens overnight....at least in 6A.

This is a great thread, DT... like a smorgasbord. Being a Tiger fan, I'll choose 1, and piggy back on this. This DOES take tame

 - weight room - New Pal is the benchmark - Tigers have begun contagion of pan-sport/pan-gender lifting culture... will it increase exponentially?

 - intangibles - Dynamic class of '19, can at least six-ten guys in classes of '20 & '21 own the room?

 - reloadable depth - replacing QB, FB, a great LT and six of the Orange Crush front seven... next man up!

These are all promising right now. We'll see what happens. Exciting season ahead, opportunities start 3-Jun-19.

Benchmark?  Coach Mills (CG Strength and Conditioning Coach) might have a different opinion...........will agree strength and conditioning is paramount to success in most any sport.

It is nice when schools and athletes care about and see tremendous value of, weight training during the school day.

But I thought Lafayette Central Catholic's "weight room" used to be located in a shed behind the school.   And their gridiron success, along with myriad other sports, can't be questioned.

Just think of how much classroom learning space could be built within the confines of that Center Grove weight room.   How many millions did that extravagance cost Indiana taxpayers?

Didn't cost you a dime Muda.  And it was put up to a vote by White River Township citizens.  Democracy at is finest.  As far as the price tag for the Student Activity Center, I am sure you can find that out via the use of your favorite search engine.

And the Student Activity Center that includes the weight room is not only used by sports, but by other academic competitions such as robotics, etc.  Additionally the community uses the facility.

Our youngest is graduating this year and we are soon to be empty nesters.  I will continue to vote yes on school improvements such as the SAC.  CG schools are the brand of this community and any investment there is a continued investment in our real estate.  So you ask about cost....what you should be asking is how much did us cost us as local taxpayers not to invest in our schools......

Also, you don't need to worry about academic space at CG....not a concern here.
