To the editor: I’ve been following the news both in the paper and on TV concerning the indictment against Ron Hewett. I’m writing to put a different spin on the controversy.
I am appalled at the low dollar amount that has been attached to the embezzlement charges. As a private citizen, I have had trees removed from my property.
I would love to have had access to “cheap labor” like Mr. Hewett did when he had his 52 trees removed.
Unfortunately in my case, I found the charge was per tree, and quite high, I might add.
