I enjoy your paper each week, and when I am out of this area, I find I miss it.
For some background on me, well, I am almost 50, an ex-military officer, fairly conservative, and have lived here on and off since I was a kid in 1973. I love it here in Candler — it is home.
I like how you guys try to be inclusive of everyone in this area. It would be pretty damn boring, were we all the same, ya know. I particularly like the food/restaurant reviews and Ken Hanke's movie reviews. Plus various articles and specials you print. Some of the political cartoonists you all feature, not so much. But that is OK, also. (I even like Asheville Disclaimer, but don't tell anyone. ;)) I also like the "Letters" section (though they raise my blood pressure and piss me off frequently), for that is what this country is all about.
Please keep up the great paper. I like nothing better than sitting down late each Wednesday evening and never knowing what will be in there. Kind of like unwrapping a new gift each week. Thanks for your hard work. God bless (I meant my God, but take that any way you want, OK? None at all, if that is your thing.)
