From Dorothy Barrett, proud 1959 graduate and fan of Harry and Joan Franks

Roy, I am having an argument with a friend who says high school football makes money for the schools. Since I moved to Florida, I notice that we are part of the southern football phenomenon where a stadium can cost $60,000,000 (this figure comes from Texas. A $72,000,000 proposal for a football stadium was just turned down in Katy). I can't seem to find the information on the web that lay out the total costs either for Neshaminy or for our local schools.

Does anyone know how much the renamed and revamped "Harry Franks" stadium at Neshaminy cost, what year it was rededicated/revamped (including lights), how much the stadium costs to operate for each game, what the helmets, uniforrms and accessories (like weight room) cost on average per year,and how donations and contributions, ticket sales and football-related paraphernalia (like hats and sweatshirts) augment the budget and what the costs are to outfit and equip the marching band and the color guard and pay the extra staff including security, coaches, and teachers who put in extra time for the team? How long is the season? Who else uses the stadium (does track?) Are there equally expensive per capita offerings like hockey, track, wrestling, tennis, golf, basketball, and volleyball available for all (I assume there are no girls on the football team).

I encourage all students to get involved outside the classroom and to explore their passions.

Dorothy you are tuff. I know all of the uniforms are hand me downs. In Baseball they order hat every year. Today all the coaches are paid a little over $1000.00. People that work during the summer make approx. $9.00 per hr.. I will keep working on this. Roy Mitchell

Dorothy, The school board votes  on the budgets for expenses .  I would imagine that information is recorded in the board records. I know the marching band needed new uniforms for way too long, finally the school board approved the cost to replace the well worn old uniforms with new , that was about one year ago.  I have had the opportunity to attend a few band competitions and football games at NHS , to me the stadium looks much the same as it did back in our day.  The scoreboard and field has probably been replaced, the restrooms and snack areas have been added new.  It’s really nostalgic to sit in the stand and remember marching across the field with the NHS marching band.

For those that have not heard. Pa. state Commission: Bucks County school district can keep controversial nickname. Neshaminy School District can keep 'Redskins' name, but must educate students to prevent stereotypes, state commission says. You can see this on Facebook

Hello everyone just letting you know. This past weekend was GYM Night, from what i understand the BLUE Team won, this is the 1st time they have won in 14yrs..

03/04/20 05:05 PM #141    

Susan Hall (DeCrescente)

Hi Roy,

Yes, I saw in the paper that the BLUE TEAM WON!  Woo Hoo - especially since I was on the Blue Team in the past.  Didn't realize it had been 14 years since their last victory.  Hope they had as much fun as we did during Gym Night.  Know it has changed greatly - but then what hasn't?
