Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Emergency service professionals, Air Evac personnel, trauma professionals and physicians at Memorial Medical Center:

We wish to express our profound thanks and appreciation for the role each of you played in saving the life of Zach. We understand the importance of each and every member of the team and the integral part you had in assuring that Zach will return to his life, go back to college and have an opportunity to make a contribution of his own someday.

Also thanks to our employers, SCI, relatives and friends for the love and support they continue to show during the rehabilitation phase of Zach's recovery. Thanks to all of you. We could not have endured this without all of you by our side. Thanks also to all of Zach's friends for their support of his needs during this tragedy.
