Granby " Evelyn Ramos’ column provides invaluable insight
March 3, 2008
To the Editor:
I was not discouraged when I read Evelyn Ramos’ column. I thought it expressed a lot of hope and a deep understanding of what it means to be an immigrant.
Her point of view is invaluable. She interviews Spanish-speaking businesses that otherwise may not have had any mention in the paper. I read her columns just to practice my lame Spanish skills, but I count on Evelyn to teach me the meaning of words like gabacha.
Evelyn Ramos is bilingual and bi-cultural. Those are extra skills on top of being a fine reporter and writer.
