My family and I just returned home from a friday night Varsity football game at Kuna High School. We’ve been attending them since 2007 when our son began playing football for KHS. My husband and I attended every single one of our sons games until he graduated in 2011. Then our daughter was part of the Kuna Gold Marching Band in 2012. We’ve supported and attended every game and function of hers.
Tonight and the past home game we attended were embarrassing. Not because of our football team or marching band. They have continued to improve and impress us. I’m ashamed of our audience. Our family has chosen to bring chairs and not sit in stands during games, but watch from the sides. The amount of kids who are running wild bumping into people is disturbing. That discourages any kuna population above 12 to not attend these functions. During half time we like to sit in seats of people who choose to go to the concession stands at half time so we can watch our band kids. We had extremely rude people screaming from seats away trying to talk as if our band performance doesn’t matter. HALF TIME MATTERS people. It’s when the kids in marching band who’ve been working just as hard (if not harder) than ‘athletes’ get to show their talents. All I saw was rudeness. I left feeling extremely disheartened. Shape up KUNA.

I would like to say a Thank You to Merlene Henery American Auxiliary 142 member for setting out in the cold and wind on the last day of Farmers Market to sell plants for American Legion Auxiliary Girl State fund. The American Legion Auxiliary 142 every year does fund raising for Girls State which is open for all Junior’s in the Kuna High School. We try to make it so the family doesn’t have to pay the full tuition or any at all. The cost is $350 for each. We can usually send up to Seven girls from Kuna High. The most we sent were 5 girls and the least has been 3. If we can’t defer the cost for all of them, The family will need to help and or the girls can ask their church, grandparents, jobs to help them and be their contributors, or if any of the Kuna community or Kuna business would like to contribute they can Make out a check to American Legion Auxiliary 142, PO Box 121, Kuna, Id. 83634. We will also be doing raffles also. February is the starting point for interviewing. March is the ending. Girls State is in June. So these next few months are crucial to our funding. Again a Big Thank You to Merlene Henery

I think that we need to supervise Indian Creek a little more. My parents won’t let me go there with my 15-year-old brother since there are too many bad people there. I just want to go to the bike race place but I can’t. So, I think that we need to keep more cops or someone to keep it more safe.
