Dear Editor:

As one of a declining group who chooses to get the daily news from newspapers, it was amazingly gratifying to read pages 1B and 2B of the Daily Sentinel for Dec. 31, 2015. Three of the top 10 stories for 2015 regional sports dealt with student athletes from Paonia High School. One small omission was that the girls' championship track team has no track of their own.

Congratulations are due to anyone involved in any way for this display of leadership, hard work, old-fashioned community pride and adhesiveness.The values learned on the playing fields, courts, mats, tracks, locker rooms and the associated venues expose these young people to the basic values of an honorable life. More wondrous is the fact that this occurred in one very small school with basic educational themes in a gritty village in the middle of enlightened cultural reformation.

Buckle up and huddle up -- the North Fork valley is still alive!
