Dear Editor:

With regard to the $1 million the school board allocated for new field houses at Heritage and William Blount high schools ("Blount school board approves $1 million for football field houses, 1A, Aug. 2):

Thomas Jefferson once said, “The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when only one will do.” So, I will be short: I hope that this $500,000 helps the Heritage Mountaineers, a team that has been hugely unsuccessful during the past few years, win at least one game this upcoming season.
