Is a compromise about to head off the great divide?

    At their age, they probably need the extra sleep.

    The 20 mile rule doesn't change anything. Schools like CCH and Holy Cross get probably 99.9% of their students/athletes from inside the 20 mile area. They need to have clearly defined areas from which they can acquire students. Give CCH Park Hills, Ft Wright, Ft Mitchell and the Nothern part of Covington. Let HC have South Covington, Latonia, Taylor Mill and give St Henry Erlanger, Elsmere, Edgewood and parts of Boone Cty. Kids could go to any school they wish but if they want to play sports they have to attend the school of the District they live in. Same goes for the public schools. Go to school in the district you live if you want to play sports. Only fair way to do it and it will never happen because it makes to much sense.

    KHSAA doesn't get to make that decision, thats Mr.Bowman's and the Bishop's decision.

    CCH only pulls very a small part of west covington and no other part of covington. There are alot of kids who parents are alumni who live in Erlanger, Edgewood, and Villa Hills who send kids and I see no reason why it should stop.

    It is still my belief that the private schools located near the state border (northern Kentucky schools, Louisville schools, Rose Hill in Ashland, and a number of others) would be much better served to leave the KHSAA to the publics and make schedules with the many, many fine schools in neighboring states. The competition would actually be a step up and recruiting, which is done by the publics as much as by the privates in Kentucky, would not present a problem. The privates would do well and the publics could have version of state championships.
    By the way, Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language indicates that the primary definition of "impotent" is: "not potent; lacking power or ability". The definition which brought on the junior high responses of a couple of posters is actually listed as definition number 5. Thus, my reference was correct.

    It won't work because people do not want to be told what private school their kids must attend based on where they live or what parish they are a member of.

    I really don't think the Listermans should have been told they cannot attend CovCath where their Dad was a teacher and coach because they didn't live in CovCath's territory.

    It could work.....if you have a parent that works at the school than i dont have a problem with the kid attending that school public or private....but when you have a kid that lives a stones throw away from lets say Highland Heights city building and he is a very good soccer player and decides he wants to play at Cov Cath instead of the other 2 private schools in his county thats where i have the problem.....but than you could end up with 25 maintance people at the private school....

    What if the kid is a really good swimmer? Should he go to Brossart or NCC where there is no swim team?

    What if a girl lives in Fort Thomas but her grandmother and mom went to Notre Dame and they want to send her to an all girls school? Does she have to go to NCC?

    What if a student lives in Latonia and her parents and two brothers went to Holy Cross and they move to Erlanger in the middle of her junior year? Is she supposed to transfer to St. Henry?

    What if a student lives in Highland Heights and has played football for Red Devils or in Ft. Thomas league for 5 years? Is he only allowed to go to Brossart where there isn't a team?
