Unneccesary name calling

In reference to Bob Monroe’s letter of Wed. Sept. 19:

Dear Editor

In reference to Bob Monroe’s letter of Wed. Sept. 19:

It is clear from his letter of last week that he was very happy with the results of the recent by-election and referendum vote.  I am therefore confused as to what he hoped to gain from his mean spirited comments post election.  I am not familiar with the “sore winner” approach.

I have lived in Golden for 61 years and have read many heated exchanges through this paper.  I must say his unnecessary name calling of last week has possibly been the most appalling.

Golden Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Golden, KHMR, Town of Golden and others go to great lengths to attract visitors and newcomers to visit and live in Golden.  Lets hope they missed his nasty comments.  I have always been proud to call Golden home.  To see those comments in print made me feel both embarrassed and ashamed.
