'Facts' don't flyTo the editor:I of all people wish the article entitled "County officials explain about Columbia decision" was true that Columbia Basin Helicopters, Inc. had enough work that would justify making up to 14 flights per day, seven days per week. The real answer is one to two flights per month averaged over a year. Why was this information printed? I wish people would take the time to do their homework and get their facts straight.We support local farmers with aerial application and will store some of our helicopters in Baker over the winter when they typically have no contracts.David McCartyBaker City
