Letter to the editor: Farmington must move beyond small-town thinking
To the editor,
Another question, what can Farmington do to keep the exceptional athletes in the Farmington school system. I know several athletes, including my child, that head to other clubs so our kids can at least be on a team that has a chance of winning.
We have the population, we have the new high school. I truly believe we screwed up not building that sports complex. Farmington, cannot sit on the sidelines and wish we had a good team. We need to develop our younger generation into winners for this town’s future.Next year this town will get a rude awakening when we go up against the big boys in football. I want thistown to be seen as a proud place. We have Tiger Pride. Last night I went to the Farmington gymnastics meet in Northfield. It was against Northfield and Red Wing. Every time a Red Wing’s gymnast was going their whole team cheered louder and it was awesome to experience. While Northfield had girls that were very good and it showed, we had a little excitement because a “club” girl is now on the team.I realize this has become a rant more than a question but this town/city needs to forget about staying small minded/small town. Farmington isn’t small anymore and I am sick of losing.Duffy Altermatt,Farmington
