Voice: Shame on Press for printing announcement

January 19, 2002

I would like to say that I totally agree with what Benjamin Reyes says about the Imperial Valley Press writing an article about the daughter of Gilbert Otero.

It is a very good thing that she is doing so well in college, and she deserves to be congratulated by her family members but not by our local newspaper. I know for a fact that the Oteros could have paid to have an advertisement put in the newspaper saying congratulations, but it is wrong for the newspaper to do that for them for free.

Shame on you, Imperial Valley Press!!!

My granddaughters went to college and they to made the dean's list, but the Imperial Valley Press did not place an article about them, even though their families were dirt poor and they struggled to finish college!

Why is the daughter of the district attorney any different? Why should she get more praise simply because her dad is the district attorney? Also, how did the Imperial Valley Press find out that the daughter of Gilbert Otero made the dean's list? Shame on you!!!
