Time to step up, Ellsworth

Dear Editor:

When Jack Scott and myself, plus the EHS Eagles basketball team of 1954, were inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009, no one from the city of Ellsworth bothered to take an ad out in the program to honor the achievement.

Also in 2014 and 2015, when Jack and myself plus the EHS basketball 1954 team were inducted into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame, the same happened! It was embarrassing. Players, coaches from other schools were so noted.

Now this year, Terry Spurling will be inducted, making it three of the starting five to have been inducted. Will some business, individual, etc. step forward to honor these people on this team, which brought so much honor to this city!

John C. Edes

Warwick, R.I.
