Re: tax/public schools

Ceres: Just as an aside, I heard a report on national news program
yesterday a.m. that cheerleading injuries, especially head/neck/back
injuries, are now the leading no. 1 sports injuries among female
athletes, especially at the college level...mostly due to the fact that
the sport is always on the look for the next extreme thing to "wow" the
crowds...I guess many schools have gone to banning in the air maneuvers
that could result in serious injuries...and that there is a movement
afoot to make sure that all girls involved in this sport are coached by
accredited coaches, not just volunteers. Amazing how what was once
considered merely as a sideline form of entertainment to men's sports
has now become a recognized sport of its own for women...hopefully that
means more awareness for the need for safety to be a primary force in
the development of the sport.

in Texas, football <br>supports its self and other less profitable

of a well rounded student. I think there are students that live for
<br>sports and is an incentive to keep their grades up. Sports have
great learning <br>opportunities but as most things they do often have a
negative side. My <br>granddaughters are involved in school sponsored
volleyball, basketball, golf, <br>cheerleading (which is now considered
a sport) and softball so they are in sports at <br>all times of the year
and over lapping at times yet they are honor students. <br>Golf was a
sport they began to play at age 3 and played as a family and
<br>competed in non-school competition (golf is only offered at hi
school level). This <br>is a sport that they will always be able to
enjoy.<br> Swimming is a great sport but seldom gets much attention.
This is a <br>sport that is ill attended, no chearleaders but one that
requires much hard work <br>and gruesome practices. My son was a
competitive swimmer with 6 am winter time <br>swims. This is another
sport that one can enjoy for life. Unfortunately my <br>granddaughters
attend a small school which does not offer this opportunity.<br>
