STORY CALLED HATCHET JOB

From: Ruth Frank

Aberdeen

Congratulations on the fine hatchet job you did onRay Warfield in last Sunday's issue, ("Officials deny Warfield housing case near settlement.")

Telling only half the story about the charges and counter-charges certainly satisfied my "right to know."

Your timing was wonderful. By your own account, Warfield filed his civil suit more than a year ago, but all of a sudden it's a big news story.

Implying that a problem with a dissatisfied customer would threaten Ray's re-election after 15 years of dedicated public servicewas an interesting twist. Off base, but interesting.

County (mobile home) inspector, Richard D. Lynch also deserves applause for his exaggerated opinion of the situation. He knows all the facts, but "what the hey," let's go for the juicy quote in the newspaper.

Take a bow, Harford Sun, for another example of totally unbiased reporting!
