Story needlessly embarrassed family
Letters to the Editor
I just read the [Sept. 7] News-Times story, 'The ransom that never was.'
I feel very sorry for the Stewart family for having to go through such a ordeal. With that said, why do you want to dredge up something that happened 32 years ago?
I grew up with the Reichard and Ross families and the parents were very nice people. You cannot always help how your children turn out. Some of the family members still live in Forest Grove.
Why embarrass them? Really. Put yourself in their place. I think you made a mistake.
I would rather read again why the Forest Grove school superintendent gets a big fat raise when all of the school programs are getting cut.
Will you print this? Probably not.
