    I'm not holding by breath that they'll call, but I'll post results if they do.
    I also think it's funny that Sexton's own kids, while residing in Eastern's ditrict, attended Male. I guess when it comes to his own kids, they don't belong to Eastern High School like the other kids in the district.
    Maybe he know just how "well" he runs a school. If that's true then Mr. Sexton (as he insists everyone call him) is pretty much a hypocrit. Eastern is good enough for everyone but his kids.

    But by this proposal since they are federally funded schools they are included as private schools.

    If that is true, it is one more reason to be against it.

    I was rather saddened to see the name of my school (along with the two other Warren County schools) attached to proposal 20. Heck, we just won a state championship in basketball. I suppose we'd rather it just be the Division 1 title. Maybe it's a 15 year old grudge against Trinity football.

    I think this is a good idea. Most of the time a kid changes schools in my area it is not because of recruiting. This will give those kids a chance to avoid the red tape of the KHSAA and allow that organization to focus on the cases that are contested.
    It already appears to work this way in SE Kentucky. I have never known a kid to sit out in this area after transferring unless the former school protested it, and 75% involve no change of address.

    Principle of the thing....I have saved the Commonwealth of Kentucky over 10k per year that I sent my kids to private school. My choice, yes, having nothing to do with sports. I am tired of people accusing me and others like me of cheating.
    This strikes at what we consider fair play. If you can't beat me, then just change the rules so everyone gets a trophy--and a ring.

    At the same time in Fayette County, we taxpayers have erected two artifical turf fields while one high school here in town was caving in on itself (no money).

    While I have not personally decided where I stand on this issue of Prop 20, let me say this. I have talked to alot of people in the state as a whole and this is the general consensus of almost 99% of everyone I have talked to. Is this the right thing to do? I dont know. While I agree there is a problem with the levelness of the playing field, I dont know if seperation of the private/public is the way to level it.

    Proposal 12 there goes J.O volleyball. Dosent this guy want Kentucky players to get any better ? J.O. definately helps players get college scholarships . Most tournaments are heavily attended by college coaches .This should be called the" Ron Kordes rule". Kills A.A.U basketball too.

    J.O. teams have players from many different schools. The one my daughter coached in the spring had girls from Beechwood, N.D.A. , Ncc , Highlands ,Simon Kenton and Ryle. This helps them make new friends and see different coaching philosophies . prop 12 just stinks.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was used as a point in court if this came to that.

    What about separate but unequal.

    If this farce passes will the Private Boys Basketball State Championship be played at Rupp Arena?

    Will the private school baseball tournament be played at Applebee's field?

    I know the private school football championship will continue to be played at PJCS and most likely out draw the public school championship (just like in Tennessee).

    Are the classes in football, track and cross country against the Constitution?

    No because there you are all considered equals according to student body size .
