Letter from Ed Wesnofske

Explosion Article Appreciated

Thank you for the publication of the recent article, “Richards Avenue Gas Explosion Not Over for Residents” by Winchester and Bensen.

For local news coverage, it was a masterful piece of work on such a tragedy.

It evoked of the ongoing chaos in lives and the immediacy of the fright from the event, the tragedy of loss of life and for those left behind and the loss of property.

The writers gave testimony to the community for the support mobilized and to the bureaucratic coldness of corporate insurance business.

A great piece of local journalism and a prize-worthy narrative. Local journalism like this deserves the support by the public at large in our age of sensationalized and flash media.
