I want to publicly thank David Ross for all he has done in his time at the Show Me Center. I believe that he has done a great job. The entire area has enjoyed a variety of shows over the years. On behalf of the entire soccer community, I also want to thank him for his tireless efforts in the promotion of indoor soccer. As a high school soccer coach, I know that my players have benefited greatly from the opportunity to play during the indoor season.
I'll add that I feel terrible about the job the media has done in covering your retirement. I believe that I speak for the vast majority when I say thank you for a job well done and congratulations on your retirement. You will be missed.
BRAD WITTENBORN, Cape Girardeau
