Letter to the editor: 'Concentration camp' is offensive

Posted on July 17, 2019 |
By Sarah Laroche



I picked up my first and last copy of your newspaper at a local restaurant. On page one my eyes fell on a story by Christopher Ross  about a protest. In the article he refers to Detention Centers as Concentation Camps. His use of that term to describe present day Detention Centers is inflammatory and insulting to all victims who were sent to real Concentration camps to face hard labor, starvation or immediate extinction. In U.S. detention centers, those held get three meals a, day, showers, beds and free medical care. I think your paper owes your readers an apology.

WEST HAVEN – The full moon hovering over Devil’s Bowl Speedway seemed to influence just about every lap of the dirt track action on Sunday, when Frank Hoard III and Floyd Billington ended long victory droughts and four drivers found themselves upside down.

No local racers won, but Orwell’s Tim LaDuc took second to lead a strong county showing in the main event, and Middlebury’s Jake Barrows also posted a second-place effort.
