I want the folks to know what a fantastic reporter Kathleen Ellyn is.
My wife and I got to meet her when she was doing the Wallowa City Council article regarding zoning issues. She is not only a nice lady, but she is a professional reporter with a strong sense of right and wrong.
At the city council meeting, when she was questioning the Wallowa-good-old-boy city council, her methods reminded us of a cross between Perry Mason and Miss Marple –– both attorney and detective.
One of the responsibilities of the media used to be accountability in communities, and boy howdy our city council could use a lot of that.
This is the first letter to the editor we have written in the 36 years of our marriage. It means more then you know.
