Wow, i just sent a comment about EDSMAN online being out of date ( a year behind) when I pop by this site and see the "LATEST NEWS" in athletics being about purchasing tickets for the the September 2009 induction dinner. I would think the Green Machine's run for the state championship, along with their first undefeated regular season might be a hot topic to write about. If you can't keep the pages current, at least delete the out of date pages.
