A Letter in the March 7 Tomahawk Leader:

To the Editor:

To everyone who experienced high school:

Remember when you were in high school? Remember those fun crazy parties? Remember those “high school jocks” lighting up, downing a cold brew?

Breaking the high school code of conduct has been going on since the beginning of the first high school, and continues to go on today. How that code of conduct is broken, should not be an issue, one athlete should not be singled out when we can all be pretty certain that there are other athletes also “misbehaving.” Remember when you were in high school? Hang in there Lampe family.

Tie to Tomahawk: I grew up there & family
Spambot: No
So if one person commits a crime and gets away with it we should let everyone else too?

Sad...

Tie to Tomahawk: born in Tomahawk - family
I believe the bottom line is this....Anthony Lampe is set to be a role model for up & coming athletes as well as the youth in the community. What kind of message is being sent if this is overlooked & his title is let to stand?? What are we teaching the children (& adults for that matter) about the rules that are set forth and SUPPOSED to be adhered to??? It is unfortunate that this happened but.... IT DID! Now the consequences to to be paid.

Tie to Tomahawk: Called it home for many years.
Please, singled out? The last time I checked a felony is a pretty big issue, sending someone to the hospital also a big issue.
Granted Roni, kids break the athletic code everyday and don't get caught, it doesn't make it anymore right. We also know that there are parents and even coaches, that are well aware of kids that have broken the athletic code and don't do anything about it, again that doesn't make it anymore right. I guess I'll never quite understand how someone can admit to a crime and expect not to pay the consequences. Nor do I understand how a parent can put the athletic status of one child above the pain and suffering of another child.
Actually Roni, I find no point in your letter.
