This is a response to Mr. Hales’ response to Mr. Honer’s letter.

You missed the point of Mr. Honer’s letter and took most things out of context in your response. The contract the athletes must sign in order to participate has harsher mandatory penalties than suit most of the offenses. Consumption of alcohol is neither condoned nor encouraged by Mr. Honer’s letter. He simply reports the contract allows school officials to remove an athlete for a minimum of six weeks for any offense to the contract, maximum of six months. The student cannot attend practice to support the teammates this individual has let down, essentially ending the season for the athlete. The individual is “out on the street” instead of in a structured activity. Some offenses definitely deserve this harsh punishment. And the girls on the soccer team may deserve the harsh punishment, I don’t know. The details were correctly not released. But the point of Mr. Honer’s letter was to simply point out the contract is very flawed.
