A poem with correct spelling

A poem with correct spelling

Comments: Editor’s Column, Sept. 22, “A cow stands a good chance in modern politics.”

Good morning Mr. Larsen, you wrote a lively editorial about the run for assessor, one problem I see, you misspelled Mary Engle’s name. The ‘e’ is last, as I typed it, versus “Engel” as you typed it. I work in the Assessor’s Office with Mary, so am very aware of how she spells her name, in addition to being familiar with the Engle family for many other reasons.

I have another topic to mention. On Sept. 15 I mailed a “poem” to your office, it hasn’t been printed. I feel it ties in nicely with your column; I wrote it after hearing so many people ask why Mary has a cow on her election sign. I’ll write it below and maybe you will decide to print it:

Why the cow?

No bull!

Grass roots

Local upbringing

Neighborhood school

Down to earth

Local farmer

Outstanding in her field (s)

Roller skate instructor

Soccer coach

Youth leader

Professional Photographer

Exemplary employee

Magnificent Mom

Ideal leader

Mary Wilson Engle

Running for Assessor

Why the cow?

No bull!

Have a great day.
