Dear Readers: Thanks for Writing

Our Readers Write: Presenting Ackerman, Blue, through Zuehlke, Ann — Our Readers Who Write, 2016 edition.

This 16th-annual listing of the writers of letters to the editor contains 443 names (70 more than 2015) of people who combined for 684 letters (148 more than last year).

These letters ran from Jan. 6 through today’s edition, Dec. 28. Numbers next to the names indicate those who wrote multiple letters; asterisks denote those who co-authored letters.

Most prolific writer this year was Jerry Giarraputo with 16 letters. Bill Davis and Steve Kaplan both came in a close second with 15 each, followed by Rob Brostoff with 12.

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 2017: We’ll be keeping a list.
