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.

Support for Seaman-designed site

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Debra Seaman is a skilled and accomplished website designer. She has graciously offered her professional services pro bono to design a site of which my hometown could be proud.

Clearly the suspicion of her offer represents the very worst of small-town thinking. It is a new world and a much larger one than Lincoln's city fathers acknowledge. People come to our community unnoticed every day by way of the official website. In that respect, I am certain the chamber of commerce would have an opinion regarding the hermetic view that Ms. Seaman's offer is some Trojan horse.

I implore the city website committee to reconsider their offhand rejection of this grand display of civic pride. If you do not understand the process of website design and maintenance, please take a moment to educate yourselves so that you might make a decision all of us could endorse.
