Ol' Dave: Hardships at Breeding nothing compared to Yellowhammer
Some people don't realize how good they had it. Breedingtonians actually luxiarated vis-a-vis beyond Spartan accomodations for scholars at Yellowhammer School, near Fairplay
Click on headline for complete lament
By Dave Rosenbaum
To contrast the relative luxury of the folks at Breeding Elementary, Yellow Hammer had none of the amenities listed by Mr. Fudge; in addition we had no electricity and our water came from a spring nearly half mile from the school.
There was a girls outhouse behind the school, but the old boys outhouse had been pushed over in anticipation that the School Board would construct a new one; but alas, the boys had to hit the cold, snowy hillside in front of the school. Calling the conditions Spartan really doesn't do it justice.
At least one time, during a gospel meeting at Pierces Chapel Baptist Church, the church had services at 10:00 AM as well as a nightly service. Since it would have been unseemly to be conducting school while church was in progress about 50 yards up the road, the school was dismissed and the kids ushered to the service. School resumed when the meeting ceased for the day.
Just the thought of such would give the ACLU a bad case of the vapors. I don't know if attending the services helped any of the students but it certainly didn't hurt them.
