Christine --- 6 years ago -

Does anyone find it crazy that they are punishing the whole school for the actions of 2 students? All with regards to a shooting in a park that happened a week ago. Now if there was a real threat, I'd understand. But there isn't because the Varsity Football Game will continue. Meanwhile those that paid for tickets, mums, corsages, dresses, etc. are out $$$ I feel the most sorry for the Flower Shops as they will absorb tremendous losses. I encourage everyone to e-mail & call the Superintendent of Schools (acting one-anyhow) Mr. Jaramillo 812-6000. Let our voices get heard. I am tired of our kids being punished by stupid bureaucracy! 

armed and lovely --- 6 years ago -

as far as i have found out, the shooting has started a "race war" and there have been threats against people at the events. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

If that were true then they'd cancel the Football game as well. It is not adding up. 

Trina --- 6 years ago -

Its called Profit and Loss on your tax return, if you own a business, such as the Flower Shops. They can claim a loss on taxes, etc.

Also, Insurance for a business is a wise idea.

I personally would not want my child around any kids that have access to guns, etc and think it is a good idea to postpone or cancel the whole thing. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

I would feel the same way IF there was a threat. There really isn't. If there was a true threat the Football Game would be cancelled. There is far more exposure out on a field than in a gym. As for the companies losing money, anyone aho has owned a business in the last few years knows that deductibles are high on insurance & I doubt this type of loss would be covered and also, these are small stores not chains. As for not wanting your kids around kids that have guns, be real we all feel that way, but cancelling events because of a few is not right. Punish the bad kids, not the good. As seen in Columbine, it can happen anywhere, at anytime. You don't stop living for fear of dying. 

Trina --- 6 years ago -

You are right that you cant stop living for fear of dying. I know I will die one day and proabably go straight to hell...........I fear no evil.

But until that day comes I will protect my children as best I can.

I agree Homecoming should be postponed or cancelled.
Maybe the bad kids will start being good. Maybe the parents of the brats should get into trouble too. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

There's a difference between protecting and smothering. Sorry, I don't agree that the good should be punished with the bad. I have 4 kids. I wonder if you really have children. If you did you'd know that "bad kids" as you put it don't suddenly turn good and that parents can't always be held responsible for what their children do when they are nearly out of the house. 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

I agree Trina. You are reponsible for your childrens' behavior until they are 18 years old.

If the shootings are gang-related, there might be absentee parenting at the root of it. Kids with no guidance. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

Yes, and therefore we punish the good kids-get real, Barbara who stalks children at the Park! 

Trina --- 6 years ago -

I have lots of children.
More than you can imagine. They just appear on my doorstep and tend not to leave.

I was just stating my personal opinion. Not bashing you for your opinion, at all. To each his own.

I do not smother my children at all, they are spoiled rotten. 

Chanda --- 6 years ago -

I tend to agree that if it is ok to keep the football game still on with it being outside, alot more people of all ages would be in more danger..and many open targets out on the field, Players, Cheerleaders, Band members etc..Parents, Grand Parents, Little Siblings in the stand then would it not make sense to cancel the game as well? At least in a Dance they are inside, Most dresses don't have places for Guns and and young men can be scanned coming thru the doors.. Also if a Parent chooses not to let their child take part in festivities that is their choice. I have a Personal Friend who owns a Flower Shop, it is hitting her hard. Insurance does not cover this. What will the difference between now and 2 weeks from now? She is a Small buisness owner, Jut like many of our Salons affected, they do booth rent..Inurance does not apply to these girls either.. I just find that they need to cancel ALL activities including the Football game if their is such a great threat being made? 

Trina --- 6 years ago -

Maybe there is a threat to the dance activities that they feel they can not control right now and for the safety of the kids they are putting it on hold.

As for the game,,,,,,who knows. 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

Stay on topic Christine. Again, I live next to the park. 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

The events have been postponed, not canceled.

We'll see. 

BamaFan --- 6 years ago -

It is my understandind that threats have been made of retaliations, specifically if the bondfire were to be held and possibly at the dance. I don't know about the game but that too might be a target now that the other intended ones have been cancelled/postponed for this week. It is only Tuesday so if the opposing team's and band's parents get wind of this that might change as well. I'm sure lots of things that we are not privvy to are going on behind the scenes 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

Friday's game will begin at 4:30pm. 

Misty --- 6 years ago -

according to the paper, they are thinking to reschedule homecoming 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

Homecoming will be in October when Alamo plays Onate according to the phone call I received. 

Chanda --- 6 years ago -

I sure do hope all those Homecoming Mums keep till then.. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

I was told October 22. 

Barbara --- 6 years ago -

Homecoming activities will be planned for the week of 10/18 with Alamogordo – Onate Football game serving as homecoming

For informational purposes, there was intel about potential threats and therefore, activities were postponed. The game was not cancelled, rather moved to an earlier time so that it would not be played in the dark. This was not an incident where 2 students' actions are making it so that all students pay. There has been no resolution to this shooting. Mr. Jaramillo and the rest of the school board and all involved were protecting the student body, not making them pay. The public doesn't necessarily have all the details but I assure you, the best interests of the student population was at the forefront when all activites were put off. ADPS had a major presence at the football game and nothing happened.
You should be thankful that the safety of the students were and are a priority.
I have 2 AHS students and it directly affected them along with various businesses around town.
Try to see the bigger picture. 

Christine --- 6 years ago -

I do see the bigger picture, I simply don't agree. As I said before, if there was a real threat ALL activities would have been cancelled. When we give in to threats & gangs and act in fear, the violence does not stop, rather they feed on it. There is no guarantee that homecoming won't be cancelled again. I have a real problem with how things are being handled. My kids safety is MY concern. I find it rather interesting that NO parents were made known or invited to said meetings. Now they want homecoming after the football game, which is obsurd!
