Your Opinion: Should stunning shot offset surcharge

Dear Editor:

I think it was really neat the superintendent for Blair Oaks showcased his athleticism by hitting a half-court shot at Thursday’s basketball game.

There is no doubt that was a fun and unique experience and I offer my congratulations, but I am wondering if the $500 prize should or should not go towards the surtax issue the district is facing or its legal fees. Nice shot “Dr. J.”
