Dear Readers: Thanks for Writing

Our Readers Write:

Presenting Aaron, Brian, through Zwanenburg, Jack — Our Readers who Write, 2012 edition.

This 12th-annual listing of the writers of letters to the editor contains 567 names (52 more than 2011) of people who combined for 769 letters (68 more than last year).

These letters ran from Jan. 4 through Dec. 29. Numbers next to the names indicate those who wrote multiple letters; asterisks denote those who co-authored letters.

The writer with the most letters this year was Anne Vance, who penned 18 letters. Close behind were Rob Brostoff, with 14, and Bill Davis, with 12.

n

The Hood River News thanks all who have written letters this year and in past years. Letters form a vital role in the efforts of this and any newspaper to present an open forum for diverse viewpoints. We appreciate the time and effort it takes to express those views.

Keep them coming again in 2013: We’ll be keeping a list.
