A celebration of democracy and of Richard “Dick” Allgood

Colorful shirts were everywhere at the fifth annual American Legion 7th District Oratorical Contest. Ophir Middle School and Lone Peak High School social studies teacher Tony Coppola stood before attendees and discussed how Dick Allgood was the reason he and fellow teacher Jeremy Harder became involved with the Sons of the American Legion.
