To the Editor:

I was a teacher and basketball coach in Mitchell for 43 years, and can say that we have the worst basketball facilities in the state. We didn't have a wooden floor in the high school till 1994, which was donated.

The high school auditorium needs a complete renovation, and so do some of our other gyms. But most importantly, the high school should be the top priority for renovation. Mitchell High School students deserve to have a nice atmosphere to finish out their high school education.

Instead of favoring one group over another, spend the money on the whole school and make everybody happy. Other schools have remodeled and they look like new schools. It's time to remodel the whole high school for all the kids.
