School board president Dr. John Williams, contacted by the NEWS Friday, gave Sablatura his wholehearted endorsement. Williams defended Sablatura as "probably the best football coach we've had here in years." "Nothing I know of now would make me vote to remove him." Williams said. When asked about the team's record (one win last year and one so far this year) Williams said with the larger schools In the district he doesn't expect to win any district honors for many years." Williams said It was his impression Bullard had been given a week to answer the letter requesting the coach's removal. However, news of the letter was published in an area newspaper on Thursday. "This was a heck of a thing to spring on him homecoming weekend," said Williams. "I think the timing was very bad." Williams added he had received "Numerous" calls in support of Sablatura with none against. "But please don't start calling me and voting," pleaded Williams. "I've got enough to do to run my business." PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AD-IT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY IN YOUR LIFE!
