Dear Dawg: You keep telling us that we cannot fire our football coach. We are getting pretty frustrated. Halfway through the season now and not a victory to show for it. Tonight we have Homecoming. No one ran for King or Queen. The kids are too embarrassed to be seen on the field with our team, so it’s going to be a pretty lame Homecoming celebration. On top of that, we are playing our archrivals tonight and they are 5-0. It’s going to be ugly.
The board members have started taking up a collection at the games to purchase a bus ticket for the coach. One way to anywhere that’s more than 500 miles away. We’ve got $273.16 so far, and expect tonight to be a big one for us. Any problems with that?
DEAR WEARING: Seeing as how the coach’s employment situation may eventually come before the school board, we think it a tad intemperate for the board members to be leading the charge to collect the cash to get the guy out of town. There are some who could view that as evidence of a bias on the part of the board. Best of luck tonight…with the game—not the collection.
DAWG BONE: LET SOMEONE ELSE PAY THE COACH TO MOVE OUT OF TOWN. NOT THE BOARD.
