It saddens and frankly disgusts me that our local paper has chosen sensationalism over compassion. Printing sheer speculation about past events that were brought to a close and have nothing to do with the current tragedy brings our paper to the level of little more than a sensationalistic gossip column and gives no thought whatever to the pain of the long time family here on our Peninsula who have lost a son to tragic events and are trying to deal with them in our community. In fact I would go so far as to say that the printing of Amanda Frink’s article was just plain cruel. Sensationalism is easy and I guess it’s what the news media thrives on but I simply have to say I find it a complete lack of character on the part of our local paper for allowing it. Imagine if it were your own family.
