Letter to the editor: Behavior during Ontario concerts shows disrespect

By CLIFF PETERSON | Cashton

After reading your “Backtalk” column of Feb. 8, I am writing this in addition to your comments.

We were lucky enough to attend the Tor production of cowboy church this past year and hear the wonderful talent of J.P. Olson. As J.P. brought the house down, we were shocked at the disrespect some members of the audience showed for J.P.’s wonderful talent by trying to talk over the entertainment that we were fortunate to have come to Ontario.

Also, at Tor’s Sweetheart Dance, there were members of the audience who were very loud in their conduct during the show.

Ontario has been very fortunate to have an individual like Tor to find such wonderful talent to bring to town and provide the shows he does at such a reasonable fee. I don’t know where Tor comes up with the great talent that he does.

As for the lack of turnout, this I do not understand. Where else could you go to see great talent at a mininum cost without traveling any distance?

You look around the area, and the lack of turnout is common in many other towns. Westby, with their Burgers in the Park, during the summer — very little turnout. It’s $5 for a meal and entertainment in a nice, family friendly park.

Cashton has had music in the park, and sometimes there are more entertainers than audience.

Sparta has music in the park during the summer and, for the size of the area, it’s a very small turnout.

What the answer is, I have no idea. Are people really that busy?

    In response to the article “Arguing in Norwalk …” in the Nov. 21 issue, I would like to voice a few concerns and add a few comments to the mix. I have stopped attending Norwalk’s monthly meetings for just that purpose. The arguing, swearing and lack of professionalism is counterproductive to our failing village.

    I am writing today regarding racism. With the march to the border, new immigration policies, and a pointless wall on the border, I feel it needs to be addressed.
