  • Letter mischaracterized candidate’s methods

    To the editor:

    In last week’s paper Mr. Jones made the statement that Barbara Paul solicited about a dozen young boys at the Harrison and Pendleton County football game. Mrs. Paul did not solicit young boys at the game. I know this because I called parents for permission in support of Mrs. Paul days before the football game.

    My intentions were not to “use” our children, as stated in last week’s paper. My husband, son, niece and other adult friends wore shirts or hats supporting Mrs. Paul.
