Focus on kids, not politicians

Editor:

With White Rock having won the B.C.’s and then competing in the “big show,” your paper’s coverage sucks.

Editor:

As once a longtime resident of White Rock – 40 years – I now read your paper online twice weekly.

The biggest thing to happen lately is the Canadian Little League Championships 2013.

With White Rock having won the B.C.’s and then competing in the “big show,” your paper’s coverage sucks.

Prior to the Peace Arch News, the White Rock Sun actually covered local sports.

Not now.

I’m sure your readers would rather read about a great group of kids achieving their goals and dreams.

Instead, you write about Mayor Wayne Baldwin’s concern about a train trestle that’s stood for 50 years (Mayor warns of potential rail disaster, July 12).

Must be close to an election.

Then there are the rest of the lackeys considering upping the Sandpiper Pub’s allowed seating because the owner is on council, (Council abstains from comment on pub application, July 18) – another stupid idea.

Thanks for thinking of the neighbourhood.

Michael Brown, Victoria

(Editor’s note: online articles posted on www.peacearchnews.com include White Rock Little Leaguers eye nationals after winning B.C. title, July 29; All-Stars cruising at Canadian Little League Championships, Aug. 7; and, after this letter was received, White Rock falls in Canadian Little League finals, Aug. 12).
