LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Local pro sports teams deserve better support
THE DECATUR DAILY:

Jennifer and I have been going and watching the Havoc and Stars play their respective sports. What is sad is that a town as large as Huntsville, with the surrounding areas, and people are so sorry and lousy, they will not even go out and support these teams.

The kids and young men who play these sports have to be hurt when they play, look around and see they have as little support from the people of this area as they do. This is sad — really sad. More than that, it is just sorry of the people of this area to do these kids this way.

These kids are away from their homes, their families and friends and playing ball for the people of this area. The least we could do is to go out and support them. Extend these young men some earned respect and support. We wanted the teams in Huntsville and we got them. Let's be "big enough" to go out and support them.
