Letter to the Editor

On writer's side

Friday, September 21, 2007

Dear Editor,

I have to take the side of Walt on his editorials on news, history, county and city history, city and state government, etc.  He is a walking encyclopedia on Red Willow County and the surrounding area.  We moved here less than two years ago and have learned so much about this area from Walt's writings.  I just wish I would have collected each and every one of his reports.  I think a booklet could be published and titled   "BY WALT".

Sometimes a few toes get stepped on and a few feelings get hurt from newspaper items but that is life.    I had a Great Grandfather that owned slaves in North Carolina.  We had a relative that was beheaded by a Guillotine in France during the eighteenth century.  That is family history, I can't change it and I can't be held accountable for it. 

 I don't have to agree with all editorials but I defend the right for them to be printed. 

 Keep up the good work Walt and I have a book that has a murder that happened many years ago east of here.  I will try to get the book to you and I think you will find it very interesting and can print an article about it.

Cal Freehling
