The general public will get its first look at the new hospital/clinic facility during a grand opening today (Thursday), 2-8 p.m. Hudson Mayor Jack Breault will perform a ribbon-cutting at 2 p.m.
A reminder to our readers that no letters criticizing the state Senate recall candidates, Sheila Harsdorf and Shelly Moore, will be accepted in next week's Star-Observer, the last print issue before the Aug. 9 primary election. Letters supporting Senate candidates are acceptable.
A letter to the editor penned by Laura Sutton and published in last week's Star-Observer contained incorrect information. The writer suggested that Mark Pribonic and two others were somehow involved in the school board candidacy of Patricia German and implemented tactics to help her advance in the February primary.
Letters to the editor present both interesting opportunities and interesting challenges. A recent letter from a Hudson High School student named Anthony Gilbert brought the issue of letters back to the front burner. Letters are a unique part of every newspaper. They give citizens an opportunity to express their thoughts and ideas to a fairly large audience -- this is a good thing. Unfortunately, there is often confusion as to what is a newspaper's responsibility when it comes to running letters. First and foremost, a newspaper has the right to refuse any letter.
