Fall football? Let the planning begin

BROOKVILLE — Getting answers from a seven-question survey from all but three schools in the District 9 Football League, including all schools involved in a co-operative program, Brookville Area High School Athletic Director Dave Osborne started the process of planning for the fall.

The league’s president knew it was time to start figuring out what the league might do when and if the coronavirus pandemic disrupts the schedule that begins in just over a month. The district’s first and only scrimmage on the schedule is Aug. 22 with the 10-game regular season beginning Aug. 28.

“We’re trying to accumulate information that will help us in making decisions and getting re-started this fall,” said Osborne, who received 25 completed surveys. “We’ll be meeting with the coaches next week and I wanted to have these results to share. It’s a big district, from Otto-Eldred to Moniteau.”

Osborne said that getting feedback from the district’s football referees and officials other neighboring districts are other vital parts of the equation. All of it will possibly help figure out a contingency plan if game(s) are postponed due to the virus.

Central Clarion Co-op Football unveils new logo, mascot

CLARION – A new mascot and logo for the Clarion Area, Clarion-Limestone, and North Clarion Cooperative Football Program was unveiled last Friday night as part of “I Love Clarion” festivities at the Clarion Mall.

The Central Clarion Wildcats, named after the Pennsylvania 105th Civil War Wildcat Regiment comprised of area volunteer soldiers, received a new logo that will be used on uniforms and other promotional material.

Karl Jacobson of DE Sports Inc. spent the last six months developing the new logo based on committee suggestions.

“We are so excited to be part of this historic moment for these three schools,” said DE Sports. “We are beyond excited to have been able to donate the logo to the Clarion Football Boosters.”

Clarion Area Superintendent Joe Carrico said the planning for the football cooperative was in motion before he was hired as superintendent.

“A lot of great work went into this process the culminating event,” Carrico said. “We were trying to pick a mascot and kept telling folks we didn’t want schools to feel like they were losing their identity. We want everyone to realize we’re creating a new identity.”

Comment on Facebook Central Clarion ...

Been away from hometown area sports for awhile. Does this mean the three schools had to combine to create a team? If so, was this due to declining participation or budgetary reasons. Impressive logo BTW.

Saving the last school dance — Parent groups plan proms for RVHS and Union students

NEW BETHLEHEM and RIMERSBURG – Despite all signs to the contrary, groups from two local school districts are making plans to host junior-senior proms.

When it became official that the COVID-19 pandemic was forcing the cancellation of all end of year events for local school districts, a group of parents from the Redbank Valley and Union school districts recently decided to host proms for their respective graduates.

Themed “Rustic Romance in the Valley,” a prom for Redbank Valley juniors and seniors will be held this Friday, July 10, at Trinity Hall in Alcola beginning at 7 p.m. Promenade will be held immediately prior to the prom at the former Andrews’ Estate in New Bethlehem beginning at 5:30 p.m.

According to parent organizers Wendy Heeter and Gretchen Kunselman, a group of parents began making preliminary plans for the event when it became more evident that this year’s school-sponsored prom at Redbank would be canceled.

Juniors and seniors from the neighboring Union School District feel much the same way about their away-from-school prom, “An Enchanted Evening,” on July 10 at Fox Farm in Rimersburg beginning at 6 p.m.

Funded by the prom committee as it normally would have been, that is as far as the traditional experience goes.

“This prom will definitely be different,” said prom adviser Nicole Claypoole of this year’s parents and friends sponsored event. She noted that this is the first time in several years that the prom will take place away from the school.

I think if online schooling is a must the lessons should also be posted Sundays at some point and that is the work for the entire week and none of this mess of having to check twenty times a day to see if something new is posted! You cannot post daily and expect everything to get done when you want it done I’m going to go out on a limb and say 90% of the parents work so I feel that it’s really necessary for the assignments to be posted weekly. I also think all teachers need to have live lessons and not just do google hangouts!!

Also, chromebooks for the students. We have 2 personal laptops in our home, but trying to keep them going between 4 students at the same time was insanity!! 😅😅

teachers need to teach the kids period......not me....

I personally feel that online learning should be on a schedule.Example: Math @ 9:15, English @ 10:00, History @ 10:40 etc. At the scheduled time, the lessons are taught LIVE. The students can ask questions, homework can be assigned, the lesson can be watched again if necessary. Any further questions can be sent to the teacher. This will help keep the students on a schedule and give them a more personal learning experience from their teachers.

I agree

Continue with online learning until the end of the year and use the Covid money the school got to get more Chrome books for the rest of the kids!!
