Ponoka News encouraged to stay strong

I look at the bottom of page six in our last Ponoka News. This is getting pretty scary; only four faces left.

Dear Editor,

I look at the bottom of page six in our last Ponoka News. This is getting pretty scary; only four faces left. The one with the lovely smile has left us. I get mixed up sometimes but since we moved to Ponoka in 1995, we had seven or so editors come and go, it seems. I sincerely hope our little paper doesn’t just decide to close down. It would be missed very much. So ladies, hang on—it can only get better, I hope.

I agree with the lady, “Town asked to implement curfew in Ponoka”. The writer of “Parents are responsible for their children,” is half right and half wrong. I was raised back in a time when we (all) helped each helped each other, of course, those days are 100 years ago it seems. This curfew is needed.

Hang tough little paper, you are needed in Ponoka.

Thank you,

Nellie Tatlow
