As a long-term citizen of Coos Bay, I am outraged that anyone would have anything but positive things to say about the new Prefontaine mural.
I am referring to the letter-to-the-editor where Kim Littlepage slammed the mural and Steve Prefontaine in general. Littlepage is completely misinformed about where the money came from to pay for the mural. In addition, the things he said about Pre’s death were ignorant and mean.
I can’t believe the World Newspaper even printed this in the paper.
Steve’s sister, Linda Prefontaine, is moving back to Coos Bay and she brings a lot of amazing ideas for our community with her. I should hope that the majority of us plan to greet her with open arms.
Littlepage is a small person. Come on, Coos County, let’s be bigger than that.
