I enjoyed the May 9, 2013, Wyandotte News print edition very much. I thought the columns on the opinion page by editor Mary Rupert, former editor Murrel Bland and volunteer columnist Diane Hentges were some of my personal favorites by those writers this spring.
Editor Rupert discusses local city events and I thought the Wyandotte News coverage of Bonner Springs Marble Day Parade and the Ag Hall’s tractor cruise was very well done this year.
Former editor Bland enjoys writing about the newspaper industry several times a year and I enjoy those pieces because I am a former newspaper correspondent in local sports writing and a Class of 1983 University of Kansas alumnus in communications studies.
Please thank writer Alan Hoskins for his 30 years of public information news and sports work for Kansas City Kansas Community College, as I enjoyed reading many of his KCKCC articles in our Wyandotte News print editions over the years. Mr. Hoskins dedicated a lifetime to the Wyandotte County area, KCKCC and local sports media work.
