Letter: Your bias is showing

Editor:

The negativity of your reporters article was less truth and more one sided opinions. It was my impression that the board did their job and were professionals at this meeting. The remark made about Kala Pearson and her situation was not only biased but they had her already convicted of a crime she has not even gone to trial for. The extreme blame in this article against Ms. Pearson really rubbed many of us the wrong way. Without her commitment and vision we would not have our beloved Ranch House Restaurant open today. She worked endlessly on our behalf and knew "the numbers." She had a lot of gumption in giving the report.

Our community is not falling apart. In fact as usual we are pulling closer together to overcome adversities. We have a lot of challenges in our small community's future. If anyone remembers what The Ranch House looked like a year ago, and what it is now, will see what commitment looks like. The transition is remarkable. The historical integrity has been restored to its former glory. It is because of community pride that makes it work. The restaurant is up and running and in need of more business, but I do not know of many eating establishments that haven't had big challenges in the first year of operation. We started with nothing and have built something that our community is very proud of.

Your reporter's article is just another example of dramatizing the news in a negative manner to entertain the masses. Send out your food critic and try writing some positive news for a change!
