Todd Schayes: Playing with class
To the editor:
My name is Todd Schayes, and I am the head high school basketball coach at the Kent Denver School. I wanted to thank Coach Hamilton, the Moffat County boys basketball team and the whole Moffat County community for attending our season opening tournament last weekend. Not only did the Moffat County Bulldogs play with heart, effort and emotion, they carried themselves with character and class throughout the whole weekend. Coach Hamilton and his boys should be commended — and I wish them well this basketball season. You have a new fan here in Englewood!

And in practice, they do, splitting the money among dozens of different programs, across more than a dozen state agencies.
