  1. I hope this issue on the gag order can be resolved. there has not been any better media given to Taft Hi sports than yours in the past. Without you people, there would have been very little of the coverage of the track team, the girls softball team, the boys and girls golf team and the boys baseball team. no matter what sport, it was always a pleasure going to your page as soon as the games were over.
