Maybe were missing an opportunity. Durango could be a model for addressing our problems in hard times.
Got to thinking about sports as handled by our forefathers in one-room country schools like I was fortunate enough to attend.
How about not busing our kids out of town for games? How about kids playing games right here? How about older, more adept athletes helping those who need help?
Some of the money spent on busing and overnight accommodations could be pay for teachers to oversee our own Home Town Olympics.
