Letters to the Editor

Jim Whiting deserves thanks from community | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Our community owes a collective thank you to Jim Whiting, the organizer and mastermind of the summer All-Comers Track Meets. For those of us who have gathered at the high school track Monday nights, Mr. Whiting has given patiently of his time and expertise.

For younger racers, these sun-filled evening runs combined the simple pleasures of exercise with the healthy spirit of competition; for their grateful parents, the kids’ predictable fatigue yielded collateral benefits at bedtime.

Our family, for one, hopes to see many of you at the races again next summer.
