    Does this really make a difference...

    http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/...66/1002/SPORTS

    First off, I'm against the seperation of public and private state championships.

    Second, how will this balance the powers that be - St. X, Trinity, Assumption, Sacred Heart, and Lex Cath - with the rest of the state?

    Third, will these ramafications have anything effect on football between private and public schools?

    I say NO.

    The amended "olive branch" Proposal 1 submitted by the schools in the article is so watered down that it would have very little if any effect. The part that limits the ineligibility year to Varsity-level only for all intents and purposes keeps the status quo.

    The limit is pointless and the penalty of one years eligibility is even more pointless. Why punish a kid with the loss of a years elegibility? How does that benefit the kid? Why should the student have to endure the punishment? How does keeping a kid ineligible for one year (most likely their freshman year), help the varsity programs competition problem?

    Its the schools that wont work this thing out, not the kids. I wonder if you ask a cross mixture of kids what they think about this issue you would be surprised at the answers. Im not sure the kids really care if they compete in post season with private or public, they just want to compete and try to win a state championship, regardless of whos in the tournament.

    Why don't the public schools go back to nonopen enrollment where you go to the school in the district you live in. Wouldn't that level the playing field?

    It is not the county line or perhaps more clearly stated, it does not need to be the county line. Every school district has the legal right to accept out of district students, even without a reciprocity agreement. There is no state law that says the Campbell County school district cannot enroll a student that lives in Pendleton County. If there is a reciprocity agreement, the state's funding for that student is shifted to the recipient school. If there is no reciprocity agreement, then the recipient school does not get the state money and usually charges tuition. But regardless, each and every public school in every county including the independent schools is perfectly capable of accepting students 25 miles away, 100 miles away or even 225 miles away if their board of education so elects. If they want to limit it to the school district lines that is their choice. Why for the life of me, except in severe overcrowding situations (think Boone Co), a school district would not want to accept out of district students (and in the case of county schools that would mean beyond the county line) makes zero sense to me.
