Letter: Poor Decision to Publish Photo
To the Editor:
I want to take the Valley News to task for publishing a photo in the Sept. 24 paper of Corey Fernandes practicing with his double compound bow in Windsor near houses. This kind of hunting bow is extremely powerful and meant to bring down large game, including deer and bear. It should never be used for target practice near houses, possibly endangering people in the area.
The publication of the photo with its headline and caption calls into question the judgment of Valley News editors when deciding what to publish and whether the newspaper is worthy of its reputation for fine, accurate reporting.
