COAL HATH NO VANDALS LIKE A HIGH SCHOOL SCORNED

When you’re a married man, father of two, living in Coal City, Illinois you gotta do what you gotta do to provide for your family… Even if it means coaching for two different high schools. Jeff Emerson is an assisstant varsity baseball coach for Reed-Custer High School and the freshman football coach for Coal City High School.

This would matter if he was coaching in a big city, and he could work at any number of Starbucks on the side, but in a village with a population barely over 5000 I don’t fault the fella. The citizens of Coal City don’t see it my way.

Apparently angered by his decision to work as an assistant baseball coach at Reed-Custer High School, someone spray-painted the side of Jeff Emerson’s brick home and his children’s playground equipment. The evidence points to overzealous high school sports fans because, in addition to profanity, the messages described Emerson as an “RC lover” and stated “CC 1.” The Emersons discovered the vandalism Saturday morning after a neighbor alerted them to the damage. The previous night, the Comets beat the Coalers by a score of 3-2 in a hard-fought but sportsmanlike game at Silver Cross Field.

Jeff Emerson said the vandalism struck “a little too close to home”.. I would imagine so since it was at his HOUSE. The family is offereing a $2000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved.
