Since public schools are in such a financial struggle, I was curious as to why Lawrence coaches took off on an all-expenses-paid vacation to Las Vegas for what was called training when the same training is available in Kansas City?
"Two coaches attended a December 8-11 softball coaches' clinic in Las Vegas. They paid for their own transportation, lodging and meal expenses. Lawrence High School paid the cost of registration, $100 per person," said Steve Nilhas, Lawrence High School principal. "This clinic offered more features than the one in Kansas City."
