  • Commodore fan appreciates sports coverage

    Unable to attend many sports events, I appreciate very much the coverage of sports in the Perry County News.

    I am also appreciative of the sponsorship by businesses for Perry Central sports events on radio broadcasts for us old folks, who are unable to attend events. I try to patronize those businesses whenever possible.

    Each time I get to attend a Perry Central athletic event, it is like a homecoming.
