Letter to the Editor
October 8, 2020
I am disappointed that you included the article in your September 24 issue titled “Man accused of kidnapping wife...” from the Gillette News Record. These are real people with real families and many of us know this family. This is too small of a community to be shaming people in our public newspapers.
This family is broken and hurting right now and we need to be supporting them with prayer and encouragement, not making them the subject of gossip at the local coffee shop. I know this article was not written by your staff, but you made the choice to include it.
There is plenty of other encouraging, good news that you could include from our area. Please think twice about what you publish next time and the level of detail that is given in it and whether or not it is building up families in our community or helping to tear them apart.
