Dear Ms. Pitzer:
I happened to stop in Neligh last week to pick up an item at the drug store. As I was checking out, I spotted local newspapers, so I bought them.
Considering prevailing conditions in the newspaper industry and small-town farm communities, I never expected Orchard to still have an operating newspaper.
As a veteran newspaperman of seven generations and owner-operator of four papers, I must commend and congratulate you and your staff. You are doing an outstanding job for the people of your area. I just hope they are aware of it and realize the value to the surrounding community.
I am a native of Nebraska. I grew up in Bloomfield (Knox County). I graduated from the NU School of Journalism in 1949, and then worked in Washington, D.C. for ten years. I saved enough money to buy my own newspaper, so after that I had the job of producing a paper every Wednesday. So I know what it takes.
Cheers for you and your staff. You are doing an amazing job. Keep up the good work.
Ramon D. (Ray) Hansen
