Reader supports newspaper and encourages others to send in their submissions

North Thompson Star/Journal encouraged by readership to keep publishing

To the editor;

P. Spear, you are right – hardly anything is written to the paper.

Come on, everyone should write in.

We moved to Barriere in 1977 – what a lot has changed.   Changes from the District to a town.

What about sawmill changes, park changes, or when there wasn’t any parks in Barriere.  Look at Fadear Park, from a dust bowl to a lovely place to walk through.

What a lot of changes.

Come on, you people out there, put something in your paper.  Keep the letters coming in.

Don’t you ever have company or guests arrive?

Kamloops doesn’t have a paper anymore, but we do – so we must keep it.
