To the editor:
I would like to commend the sports staff at The Messenger. Their coverage of Lisa Koll (Uhl) has been tremendous. I have really enjoyed reading all the articles this week in preparation for her Olympic 10,000-meter race on Friday. All the things the sports department has done are well deserved.
How amazing is it that we have an Olympic athlete from FD? With that said, how amazing is it that we have such a wonderful representative of our city? Lisa is not just a great athlete, but a excellent person who is "living the dream." I hope our young people are reading the paper and seeing what one can do if they are truly dedicated to something, set very high goals, and do the things that it takes to achieve those goals. Lisa should be an inspiration to the youths of FD and I hope she does well Friday.
Thanks Eric Pratt, Chris Johnson, Dana Becker and the entire sports department.
