Letter: Elida board was clueless

I agree with the Thompson family’s letter to Your View in the April 28 edition of The Lima News.

As a sportswriter for the Van Wert Times-Bulletin and The Delphos Herald, I can say Denny Thompson was always available to answer questions after a basketball game (unlike some unamed coaches, where you had to pry information from them).

The Elida Local Board of Education made a huge mistake by non-renewing Denny Thompson’s contract to coach varsity boys basketball at Elida. Denny was an excellent coach for Elida and the Elida school board must have forgotten this.
