I am a law-abiding individual, but the fact that I am apparently not free to walk around town listening to music on my headset as I try to get a little exercise is something that should be of concern. We’re not a “papers, please” society yet, but with the experience I had this week, we’re getting there.
Saddened to Learn
I am saddened to learn that Tony Eierdam was [terminated] from his duties as editor and sports writer for our local newspaper. I have lived in this community for 25 years and we have never had the sports coverage that Tony has provided over the years. He covered all sports for every school in Palo Pinto County.
The error in the Sunday paper about our local Fuzzy’s Taco restaurant was unfortunate and obviously just an oversight. Tony loves this community and would never intentionally do anything to hurt anyone.
Tony was loved by athletes, coaches, families and community members. My hope is that Tony can return to what he loves and has done his entire life.
