Writer: More sports coverage needed

April 7, 2014

I am writing this letter because I have a question: Why are their no pictures or writeups in the paper for the Rec games, whether it be basketball, baseball, soccer or football?

I understand and see the writeups for the schools but none for Rec sports. I think there needs to be writeups for them also.

We may be a small town, but still the children love playing sports and the Rec sports are just as important as the school games. These sports and children want to be recognized too. We as a community need to show our support of the Rec games in all ways.

Please, let’s see some pictures and writeups for our Rec games and children. It is baseball season now and, I, as a grandparent can attest it is going to be a great season for the children. Let’s show our support and be proud of all our teams — but most of all our children.
