Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor:

Winthrop Youth Football would like to thank the Town of Winthrop for their outpouring of support to help raise money for the youth football program.  Over the past two seasons the Winthrop Youth Football program has played entirely on the road because of the construction of the new field which has been a burden to the players and their families.    This season the program was allowed to host games on the new Miller Field however the fees increased significantly and had created a budget shortfall for the program.  The fundraiser and the towns unwavering generosity helped ensure the kids and their families will be able to continue to host home games on the new Miller Field.

On Friday Sept. 21 Winthrop Youth Football Hosted a Viking Fan Tailgate Event to raise funds for the future of the program and show support to the Winthrop High School Football team as they set to play Swampscott Big Blue under the lights.

Over 250 friends of the program bought tickets to show their support- WYF thanks each one of you!

Dear Editor:

We have serious issues to deal with in this country. Since Katherine Clark is refusing to debate John Hugo she openly admits an unwillingness to discuss these issues in the public forum. It is an elitist politician who refuses debate.

We can do better. Please encourage Katherine Clark to debate John Hugo because it is her job to engage in debate.

Anthony Tamagna
