I believe its people like you listening to people like you! Cry me a river, poor Frankfort has it rough. I am not sure that is a great argument anymore. Every community has fallen on hard times. Let's take a look at your alma mater, Maconaquah, for instance. Economically that area was on top of the world in the 80's with great athletes. The base was booming, Square D was in full swing, GM and Chrysler were doing well, and farmers were struggling a little. The schools athletics were ok. Nothing super special, but they were always competitive and produced some top athletes. In the 90's the base starts a transition and GM and Chrysler start slowing down. By the 2000's things start getting rough. The base is closing, GM is a shadow of its former self, and Chrysler takes a dip. Square D lays people of and eventually closes by 2019 or so. But somehow a school goes from something like 4% free and reduced lunch to around 70% free and reduced and we don't hear any crying out of them! Cass would be in a very similar situation. There was no industry keeping those communities afloat or breeding new life into the area, and yet they keep chugging along and doing ok in sports. I suppose you can bring up the higher Latino numbers in Frankforts area, but those numbers have risen at Logansport. Yet they are not complaining! Their sports aren't dominating, but they are't lobbying for a move to a 1A conference either. Then again, maybe your right... 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
