A visit from McNees brightens the day

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

My 9-year-old daughter participates in the fourth-grade intramural basketball program at Shenango on Saturday mornings.

Recently, Coach Bill McNees took time out of his day and joined in the fun. I asked my daughter how basketball was. She replied it was so much fun. She said McNees was so funny and he handed out candy.

I missed it because of the snowstorm and was stuck at work. But after talking to her on the phone, I smiled, grabbed my shovel and said it’s a great day to be alive.

I’m grateful to the coach for spending time with these future lady Cats.
