    Crazy Train Ozzie...

    I am very sorry that you don't see this as a great opportunity. It is fantastic for them and I know those kids have worked hard to get where they are. I went to West Johnston and was part of the band the first four years of its existence and I know how hard those kids work not only for the band, but in their classwork as well. I can tell you from experience it wasn't easy balancing school, band, and a job.

    Think before you speak. West Johnston is very proud of their band program and they should be.

    Congrats West Johnston!! You have worked very hard for this and it is very exciting for you!!
