Letter to the Editor

Public apology

Arroyo GrandeDecember 21, 2012 

In regards to The Tribune’s Dec. 20 article, I wish to respond to Adam Hill’s egregious misrepresentation of Bill Thoma’s character. I have known Bill for more than 40 years and am appalled that such a man as Adam Hill would dare to besmirch Bill’s name.

Bill and his brother Ed have done much for the community, and therefore we should not put any confidence in or be in any way persuaded by these words aimed to tarnish a good man’s reputation. Mr. Hill needs to be held accountable for his slanderous action with a public apology to Bill.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
