Am I the only one?

 

I placed an article in the Sunday paper way back some time ago about Cleburne not having any tradition with it’s school system other than change being it’s tradition. If you go to any of the games no matter the sport and look around in local retail stores you will find several different colors; several different mascots and through the years there have been other things that had changes. 

I think those who want to participate, and I being one of them, should get together and vote on what the tradition of the Cleburne Yellow Jackets should be. Like the coach said ... he’s building a monster and it starts with the feet.

Well ... I believe the feet should be our tradition whatever that might be. All I know is this tradition is a person, place or thing that is set in stone and never changes. I look around in all levels of sports, especially college and the stands are full of whatever the school colors are, the primary school colors are not a different color. 

On another note, has anyone ever seen in football at any level the mascot wearing a bow? This is football man. Geez.

I think it would be great to look around at all school functions and see nothing but BLACK and GOLD (Vegas); one Mascot (we currently use the original;one that was created back in the day with boxing gloves and one that when I see it I think ... Georgia Tech.) 

Tradition. We use to have it ... I think. Maybe it’s just me.

Johnson County has so many wonderful individuals who deserve recognition. I want to give thanks to all who have served and sacrificed themselves for our freedoms, with special thanks to my father — Lt. Frederick Michael Hutto, U.S. Navy retired, and my father-in-law – SFC David Flatt, U.S. Army Retired. As the proud mother of a new Marine, I want to say thank you to all of the young men and their families, who have or are entering the military, including Pvt. Brant Martindale USMC, Pvt. Justin Leisering USMC, Pvt. JC Leisering USMC,  Pvt. Ethan Phifer USMC, Recruit Brandon Jones USMC, AB Jarett Rodriguez USAF, and SPC Colton Hurt U.S. Army.

You are all a blessing and honor to Johnson County and our country. Anchors Away. Army Strong — Hooah. Semper Fidelis. Aim High ... Fly, Fight, Win.
