Thanks for the NAIA basketball standings in the Thursday, Jan. 17 paper. My son plays at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. Hope to see more on NAIA schools in the future.

I want to commend Jamie Hall on the sports write-up he did at our racetrack Saturday, January 12. The story appeared in Sunday's sports section. Jamie comes from a family of motorsports; his grandfather, Jim Hall, raced with the best in the business and is a hero of mine. Jamie is a big asset for your sports department and will be able to contribute a huge amount of knowledge regarding the nation's number one sport: racing. We have a very large amount of race fans in the southeast Missouri region and Jamie's expertise in the sport will enable him to keep all of our race fans in the area up-to-date on what is going on at the local tracks (Auto Tire and Parts Racepark, SEMO Motor Speedway, Malden Speedway, St. Francis Co. Speedway and, of course, NASCAR). You have a good sports writer in Jamie Hall one to be proud of and that will represent your newspaper proudly.
