Don't forget good grammar

It is refreshing to read articles written in correct English. I value the writer's choice of correct spelling, grammar and usage, which does not happen too often nowadays in magazines and newspapers. One feels compelled to correct folks who use "me" instead of "I" (mommy and me), apostrophes on nouns without a possessive (chicken wing's), confuse the verbs: lay and lie, sit and set, raise and rise, and the worst, calling everybody: "You Guys," when a simple "You" would do and be correct.

I especially look forward to reading Nicholas Wilbur's articles such as the recent "Bidding Process Policy ..." and the others on the numerous meetings about the Kingman Crossing debacle.

The Miner should try to keep good reporters and appreciate them. I also enjoy the photographs of JC Amberlyn.

Encourage and keep up good grammar and English usage, and hopefully, some of it will rub off on the students attending our local schools. I know they get to read the paper in some classes.
