Letter to the Editor

Your view: Efforts appreciated

Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Today's society seems to find us hearing complaints about all the things we do wrong. I'm sure the newspaper business is not much different with people quick to criticize how a story was written. If you are expecting another letter like this, quit reading because this is a short letter to commend your writer Larry Lewis.

Larry recently wrote a story about the Elks Hoop Shoot. I dropped off some information that included a lot of facts. He read through all the flyers and information. He called and interviewed me and a past winner, Ben Bryant, and the results from all his efforts was an excellent story that was in the Nov. 14 paper.

I've had several Elk members comment to me about how great the story was written. As a result of that I wanted to take the time to write this short letter to thank Larry and all the Standard staff for an excellent job.
