To the Editor:

I couldn’t let this week’s Reporter go by without thanking you for two of the articles in the July 14 edition. 

One was the story entitled “Forsyth’s Buff in 34th year helping special campers enjoy summer fun” about Tracy Buff, or Coach Buff. He is as solid as I observed him to be while my late nephew Kamron played middle school soccer with him as coach! He is an outstanding soccer coach and Kamron, as well as all the players, greatly benefited from his strength of character and coaching abilities.

Reading the story about Coach Buff’s length of selfless service volunteering with the ARC Camp for over 30 years only verified the solid character of this man. Oh that there were more quiet leaders of his integrity involved in the policy decisions made by those on the school board and its leaders!

The other story that caught my attention was “MP shakes up soccer program”. Best wishes and congratulations to the two Coach Halls! What a duo to have for the MP soccer program! Dallas and Casey lead them to STATE!
