Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
I am renewing my Mascot subscription for another year. I enjoy reading the Mascot, and I look forward to continuing to receive it each week. It is great to read about my home town, even though I have not lived there since the 1970s.
The 50 Years Ago column is particularly fun, as I was a senior writing the Mascot's high school sports stories 50 years ago. We didn't have as many teams back then.
It's sometimes hard to believe that I've been reading the Mascot for over 54 years, since our family moved to Minneota when my dad Ralph became school superintendent in 1966. He wrote a column nearly every week until retired in 1982. When the Larson boys (Keith, Paul, Marc and Brent) reached adulthood, my parents found the perfect birthday gift, a one-year subscription to the Mascot. I took over when they were unable to continue.
Thanks to Scott for taking over after Byron retired. Scott, you are doing a great job.
