SPRINGDALE (KFSM) — The Har-Ber High School Parent Teacher Student Organization has stopped selling t-shirts with an apparent gang sign on them, according to a Springdale School District spokesman.

The t-shirt was sold by the PTSO and was not authorized by the school district, Rick Schaeffer said Friday (Aug. 28).

The organization sold about 140 t-shirts before stopping sales, Schaeffer said. He also said the design did not intentionally include the gang sign.

    That is ignorant, however not as ignorant as the PTO members that cannot spell WILD. There’s an I in there. Seems to me that is why they stopped selling them and want to stir the pot and blame their failings on gangs. Great example for the kids.

      It isn’t spelled incorrectly, it is just a really bad picture that you cannot see the “I” in. The pto people and the person who designed the shirts are actually very intelligent people. You shouldn’t bash people you don’t know for something that isn’t even true. I would post a better picture in this thread, however it will not let me.

      Edit: There is an I in there. They can spell. It is HIGHLY urgent that we spread the word that they can spell and that they made absolutely no mistakes in creating this t-shirt. So urgent, in fact, that people feel the need to contact me about it over and over and over. HAR-BER PTO CAN SPELL! Shew, crisis averted.
