LETTER: Newspaper didn't know all details

To the Editor:

I have never written you a letter even though I have not always agreed with your editorials or opinions. But I feel it is time. I am referring to your "hisses" post in the Nov. 30 issue dealing with the sentencing of Herris Lambley. Let me ask you this - Were you at the Gregory County Courthouse in Burke on Nov. 24 when the sentencing was held? Did you listen to what the judge said? Do you know the Wheeler family and did you talk to them before you wrote your hisses article? Do you know Herris Lambley and did you talk to him before you wrote your hisses article? If you answered "no" then that's not fair that you wrote about them.

Do you know that Mr. Lambley lost his wife of 58 years two weeks before his sentencing? That's not fair.

The death of Mr. Wheeler was a tragic accident. It's not fair that a young man had to die. Mr. Lambley will live with that every day for the rest of his life.

Now let me ask you this - How many times have you or your editorial board slipped through a stop sign, slowed but did not come to a complete stop? I think your editorial board should look at themselves before they cast opinions about others. Hopefully, it won't have to be one of them they "hiss" about next time. Why does a newspaper think they have the right to editorialize about something they don't have the facts on? That's not fair.
