To the editor:

I would just like to extend our thanks to the kind people of Baker City. My husband, our six kids, and myself were recently broke down there for a day and had several great experiences.

Even though we were not there by choice, your city is an ideal place to break down, that's for sure! I would like to especially thank the kind women at the front desk of the Rodeway Inn, Paul and his employees from Paul's Transmission for completing the work on our vehicle in one day, and Anita from Rite-Aid for being so kind in helping me out with a ride to the bank when I was in a serious time crunch.

You all have no idea what a great impression you have left on us for a long time. Who knows? Maybe next time we will come just to visit!
