A new weekly opinion column has been added to the Summerland Review’s editorial page on Page 4, beginning this week.

From Here is a series of thoughts, reflections and opinions from Rob Murphy, the Review’s sales manager and John Arendt, the Review’s editor. The two writers will be featured on alternating weeks.

The column is intended to generate discussion about issues and concerns affecting Summerland.

“It helps us to have local opinions on our editorial page,” Murphy said. “You may not always agree with what’s written and that’s okay. We encourage readers to engage with us in letters to the editor.”

The views in the column are personal opinions, unlike the editorial in the shaded box on Page 4, which is a statement from the paper.

“While Rob and I often have differing opinions on the same topic, we appreciate each other’s views,” Arendt said. “We encourage others to join in this spirit of respectful dialogue.”
