Several have written to the editor to express their disapproval of this newspaper for endorsing Mitt Romney in the recent election, and some to agree with The Daily News.
Why is anyone surprised? The paper is owned by Ogden Publishing, a conservative company in West Virginia.
Before that, it was owned by John P. McGoff, also a wealthy ultraconservative.
This newspaper has always been a conservative paper, and as far as I can remember, it has always endorsed the Republican candidate, whomever it was.
No surprises there.
Also, this is a relatively conservative area.
However, we are one of the few communities in the U.P. that still has a local daily paper.
Further, The Daily News editor has, for many years, provided this community a forum for sharing ideas, whether they be liberal, conservative, or other.
There are rules for the courteous use of the editorial page, and as long as we abide by the few simple rules, our letters will be printed.
I am appreciative of the opportunity to express my opinions, and I think we should commend Blaine Hyska.
