Dear Readers: Thanks for Writing



Our Readers Write: Presenting Allen, Nick, through Zimmer-Stucky, Jasmine — Our Readers who Write, 2014 edition.

This 14th-annual listing of the writers of letters to the editor contains 494 names (78 more than 2013) of people who combined for 678 letters (219 more than last year).

These letters ran from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31. Numbers next to the names indicate those who wrote multiple letters; asterisks denote those who co-authored letters.

Most prolific writer this year was Bill Davis, with 18 letters. Close behind were Dave Dockham, with 14, and Gary Fields and Steve Kaplan, with 13.

The Hood River News thanks all who have written letters this year and in past years. Letters form a vital role in the efforts of this and any newspaper to present an open forum for diverse viewpoints. We appreciate the time and effort it takes to express those views.

Keep them coming again in 2015: We’ll be keeping a list.
