I would like to comment on the Letter to the Editor written by Barbara Bosse. I normally would not defend the Weekly when it comes to their coverage of local high school sports because it has basically been nonexistent unless it was Football or Baseball. I want to thank Dennis Miller for encouraging Coaches of both High Schools here in Pleasanton to submit articles about their teams accomplishments. Barbara, the reason the story was one sided is because it was written by a Foothill parent. If you want unbiased reporting than your team needs to submit an article. I am sure that Dennis Miller would have used both articles in the piece had your school decided to participate. So again thank you Dennis Miller for introducing other sports to the Weekly. I would like to use this forum to encourage parents of all high school sports to submit articles and pictures to Dennis so that all sports get the coverage that they deserve from our local Pleasanton Weekly.
Go Falcons!!! Go Dons!!!!

Back when my children were in HS we had a parent volunteer each year who covered each home and away game and submitted the stories to the person who volunteered to man the specific sport website so we had write ups on the HS website and they were also sent to the local papers, not all the write ups make the papers which is fine but at least parents were able to read about it on the sport website.

Again this come down to PARENT VOLUNTEERS which I believe is a dwindling as well.

Go Dons!!! Go Falcons!!! Go Pleasanton!!!!

Barbara sure seems Bosse in her comments.

Perceived objectivity has always been an issue. Any time one school was recognized, the other school supporters cried foul.

The first article Miller published had the water polo people up in arms splashing for attention.

Some things never change.

Babs -- Dennis issued an open invitation to the community to submit story content when he announced the new prep sports column here: Web Link

Every team has the opportunity to be highlighted in the column; it just takes input from the sport with news to share. So if a story is one sided, consider the source, or lack of one.

Thanks to Dennis for highlighting prep sports for Pleasanton!
