He was an advocate

To the Editor:

I recently read in the national news of the passing of Mr. Gish of The Mountain Eagle.

Mr. Gish was an advocate for the people of Letcher County and honest government. The Eagle was his voice.

Although I left Letcher County in 1940 to seldom return, The Eagle was always a means to keep in touch with the place where I was born and raised.

The very best wishes for the future success of The Eagle.
