Ohio mom has marquee sign showing anger at school

BERLIN HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio mother who says her son got a raw deal from his middle school’s football program has put her feelings on a marquee-style sign in her yard.

Amy Ortner’s bright yellow sign in Berlin Heights in northern Ohio has letters about 6 inches tall and the message, “Berlin football — Shame shame — We don’t play those kind of games!”

Ortner says after her son, Keegan, trained with the team for weeks and paid $70 for a physical and cleats, she was told the student handbook said his grades weren’t good enough to play. Ortner says the school won’t pay back the $70.

A school board member and a local business owner have offered her the money to take down the sign, but Ortner claims they’re more interested in appearances than in justice for her son.
