It is extremely hard for me to understand how anyone can be offended by your pictures or articles on areas in the town of Glen Rose. I guess those that are may be in the areas you pointed out or just did not understand.

I am sure the persons who wrote that very long rambling tale about your column to the letter to the editor April 11 have no idea of what you were trying to express, as all you were showing were the eyesores which are not good for this town!

Glen Rose depends on visitors to come and enjoy the flavor of old-town atmosphere, which does not include areas rundown and junk in the yards.

Think how much time you took to criticize the editor. I am amazed that it was printed, but I think the editor had a reason. So Kathryn Jones, keep on keeping on!
