Mascots must remain anonymous

You have a very appealing picture of Sparky on the front page of the Nov. 27 Western News.

It lead me to read the caption, which lists who is wearing the costume.  Mascots do not identify this kind of information to the public.

My little grandchildren are learning to read.

I don’t want their fun spoiled by reporting such as this.  This is a season for fun and special secrets.

Let’s keep it that way as long as we can.

Thanks for considering this in future.
