To the editor:

Speaking as an individual and not as board chair, I was surprised to read your editorial concerning the actions of the Pine-Eagle School Board in our decision to retain Jeremiah Sprague for the remainder of the basketball season.

I was surprised because such interest in our school district is rare and unusual for your paper. I do invite your paper to report on the positive events in our district, other than sports, such as test scores, FFA, speech, and other non-athletic events.
