Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Great front page on March 2

Kudos to the Penticton Western News

In today’s world where, no matter which media option one chooses, there is so much bad news, and where we’re advised to beware of fake news, what a delightful and heartwarming story you chose to put on the front page, and continued onto page 3, in the March 2 edition of your newspaper (Sport takes indigenous youth back to the land).

I was pleased to learn of the opportunities available to Penticton Indian Band and West Bench children, and Mark Brett, who wrote the piece and took the photographs, wrote in such a way that I could imagine myself there, enjoying watching and listening to the children as the experience a new activity.

Good news stories are often hard to come by. Thank you for choosing to make this your lead story on Friday.
