Every month we get comments about the news presented about the local schools. The most common complaint questions the balance between sports and other school activities. In the four most recent issues of the paper their have been 13 sports stories and six non-sport stories about the three schools. Of the 19 total stories the only front page story was of an academic nature.
The disparity between Rye High School stories and Craver Middle School and Rye Elementary School is greater. In our defense we have asked the schools for their first honor roll; we got one of the three. We also reached out and asked if each school had one teacher who could let us know what is going on at the school. We havenít had much luck. We know teachers have lots to do so even just a heads up would help us do a better job of covering events in the schools.
