Where to start, and even whether or not to start a response to Quinn Dahlstrom’s allegations and outright lies?
Ah, yes, ‘tis the season of peace, good will and merriment. Except of course for those who wish to usurp the season for a holiday that you or I or someone doesn’t celebrate. Then we must jealously guard our symbols and holiday time against those who wish to steal them. We must say Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah or whatever, defiantly, to let others know that our holiday is best. Those who are timid will meekly say happy holidays, or seasons greetings for fear of offending.
“Citizens Should be in charge of Bonney Lake.” This was the headline on Ms. Dahlstrom’s latest Letter to the Editor included in Dec. 3 edition of the Courier Herald. It’s not my intent here to deal with the entirety of the letter because much of it is accusations without basis. However there are a few items that need rebuttal.
It was a fairly pleasant day as we drove toward Highway 410 on Mud Mountain Road. Rounding the corner just before the area where Mount Peak hikers park, I grabbed the dash at the sight of a small white car coming over the hill straight at us! The driver was passing two cars on a curve in the road. “She’s going to hit us head on,” I yelled to my husband who by then was heading toward the ditch to miss the oncoming car. The young woman glared angrily at us as she sped by, barely missing us.
It didn’t take part of seven columns to get J. Buss’s garbled message. And surely the Courier Herald would have been within its legal rights if it had refused to print the libelous statements about President-elect Obama.
I wish to thank Mr. Jacobsen and his friends George and Mr. Doll for supporting what isn’t broke in this city. I also enjoy their thoughts on what is right with the city – What are they?
Editor’s note: this letter was written in response to a letter written by Lynda Dabson published in the Nov. 19 edition of the Courier-Herald.
