Letter to The Editor

Writer supports Sorensen on school board

To the Editor:

I reside in Weisenberg Township. I felt compelled to write this letter after reading articles in both the Morning Call and the Northwestern Press (Feb. 28) regarding Leroy Sorensen's decision to remain in his duly elected position.

As I read the articles, what kept popping into my head was a statement Paul Carpenter made in an article written years ago which was, "Something stinks in Weisenberg but it ain't the manure."

In this case, it should read: "Something stinks at the school board meeting and it ain't the manure."
