Letters to the Editor

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this on behalf of my wife, Sonia Nemec.

Sonia works hard to have a nice looking lawn! It gives her a lot of pleasure! To have someone deliberately try to destroy that lawn, with what appears to be a burn down chemical, is hard to understand. I can say without a doubt, it saddened and hurt her. She did not deserve this!

We have no idea why anyone would do this. She did make a call on some animals grazing on her lawn, in case they were being looked for.
