I am saddened that last Friday night's boys' basketball game between Coeur d'Alene High School and Post Fall High will be remembered for poor judgment by a spirited crowd of students and inadequate adult supervision. I am encouraged, though, by the thoughtful community dialogue of what constitutes good sportsmanship that has emerged over the past few days. CHS is a better school than Friday night's snapshot of behavior. As the Superintendent of the Coeur d'Alene School District I apologize to the players, students, parents and administrators of Post Falls High School. We did not create an atmosphere of respect and positive competition -- period/Hazel Bauman, Coeur d'Alene Superintendent of Schools, via Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What do you make of Superintendent Bauman's apology?
