Letter: James Newberry has helped all our children

To the Editor:

I have not kept up with all the editorializing that has taken place about James Newberry, but I can only imagine what people have said. If any of those people have had children and raised them up here over the last 25 years, you should remember or be reminded that Mr. Newberry has in one way or another had a positive influence and touched all their lives.

From the sports fields around Grand County to the high fives he has given our kids at state tournaments, James has always loved and supported all the children of Grand County at all times. I remember after the loss of his son, James got right back up and supported all the kids of the county with the same love as before his loss. If any kid Athlete needed a ride a 100 miles to a game and James were free, he would get that child to the event and on time and on his own dime.

I know he has been a positive influence over the years in the growth of my now three adult children.

This gentlemen has given and given so much in so many ways. Have you?

Steve Palm
