Letters to the Editor
Lost boys found safe Apology extended for crime
Drugs and alcohol. Can we
ever overcome this problem in
today's society. There still exists
that neverending battle against
the dependency of these chemi
cals. Why does this continue to
have a big influence over so
many around here? We have a
unique working program here
trying to combat the situation
but it still lingers on.
With all the horrible things
that have happened to some of
our people in the past, like auto
accidents, suicide and other
chemical dependent caused situa
tions, it seems like people would
be aware of what comes from
these things and try to encour

People who resort to those things must not have any goals in life
and live from day-to-day in a world of their own and do not realize
the hardships they put on the ones who care for them. There are a
lot of children who experience hard times from situations like this
caused by that person who couldn't care less of what he is doing to
others just to satisfy himself. A lot of children are innocent of all
these things and it's the innocent who do all the suffering at the end
and by that time, it's "bye, George," and the case is closed.
To the Kditor
The families of Wolfman, Tracy
Sam, Albert Charley, Cory St wycr,
Jerome Lewis and Phil George
would like to thank the following
departments and people that came
to their aid when they were lost
overnight in the woods.
The boys went out 5 a.m. Sun
day and were back by noon Mon
day. They got stuck on the Simna
sho Butte area.
We, the parents and grandpar
ents never slept that night knowing
the cold and not knowing what
could have happened, but the
expertise of these departments and
people kept us in line and calmed
us down. Without them we would
have been lost in the woods. Thank
"nu very much Keith Baker and
