To the editor,

I would like to thank Ben Schuff for the amazing series of articles he wrote on the Newton A’s. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and re-reading them. They’ve brought back many fond memories.

A friend approached me after church this past weekend and joked that I must be broke now because of all the money I must have spent to get the former players to say those nice things about me. After giving it some thought, I’m convinced that regardless of what happens in the future, I will never be broke with friends like my boys.

Once again, thanks Ben! I think you might have a future with this writing thing.
