Letters to the editor for Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Another supporter of WNC athletics

Writing letters to the editor is usually not something I normally do, but I feel compelled to express my feelings about the announcement made that the WNC athletic programs are going to be shut down. This is an absolute travesty to the boys and girls who work so hard to achieve their goals they have set for themselves. These are devoted athletes who give 100 percent to their sport and in the classroom.

Taking away programs like these hurts the students and the community. The parents of these students spend thousands of dollars in the community renting houses and buying food to accommodate their needs. If this is truly a state budget issue, just wondering why all junior college sports across the state are not being impacted and only WNC. I live in Las Vegas and College of Southern Nevada is not being shut down.

Student doing report on Nevada

Hello! I am a fifth grade student in Washington state. In fifth grade at our school, we do state reports, and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Nevada as I work on my report.

Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and encyclopedias. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me with my report. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper article, or any other items that would be useful. I appreciate anything you can send!

Thank you for taking time to read my letter. I appreciate you considering my request for help. Anything you can provide would be great! I am very excited about my report on your state!

Items can be sent to Lillyona Romeze, Conway School, Mrs. LaRocque’s Class, 19710 SR 534, Mount Vernon, Wash. 98274.
