To the Editor:
Please pass on to the grand folks of John Day and the surrounding communities my sincere congratulations on taking a stand concerning the Aryan Nations wanting to set up shop in the community.
I was blessed to have graduated from Grant Union High School in 1965 and still have fond memories of the "Can Do Community Spirit" of Grant County. During times of stress, economic or weather related the community has always found a way to rise to the occasion with a positive vision.
I know others that have lived in Grant County share the same strong feelings and passion for the community and wish God speed on defeating this evil virus attempting to take hold.
