Important to present both sides of story fairly

To the Editor:

I am a long-time subscriber to The Altamont Enterprise and have always enjoyed your well-written articles. Your stories always seem to be fair and present both sides of a story.

Therefore, I was surprised and disappointed to see that you did not follow your usual approach to reporting in the front-page story on July 26, 2018 “A familiar Immigrant Story: When Facing Hardship — There is Only Perseverance.”

This piece is one-sided and does not present Mr. Van Wie’s side of the story in full.

Linda A. Sidoti, Ed.D.


Editor’s note: We repeatedly offered Paul Van Wie the opportunity to give his side of the story. We included as much as he and his lawyer would share. We reviewed the lease and are certain the truth was told.
