Superb athletics

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

If you live in Colquitt County and like sports, you are probably a Packer football fan. So am I. I have had tickets for 40 years. However, during the past seven years I have also become a Packer soccer fan.

If you want to see some superbly conditioned athletes perform, you need to come to Packer Park.

These young women and men play on a field about the size of a football field, and they never stop running. The action is fast and furious and continuous.

They play two 40 minute halves ( high school) and stop only for injuries and substitutions. Middle school and junior varsity teams play slightly shorter time periods.

You will be amazed what these athletes can do with their feet. I believe they are the best coordinated athletes I have seen.

If you have not been to Packer Park, you are depriving yourself of some exciting, athletic action. Please do not take my word for it. Come see for yourself.

You will enjoy it and the players will appreciate your support.

Then you can do as we often do. When soccer is finished we walk across the parking lot and watch Packer Baseball. These guys are good. GO ALL Packers!

Bruce Leigh

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
