Towanda editor Ronald Hosie gets a little prickly when he responds to a letter from Orwell's Judy Russell, a reader who complained that a recent front page was filled not with Towanda news but with news from Scranton Times-Shamrock reporters. "I appreciate Mrs. Russell's point of view. But, if there is a perception that "local" is fading from The Review, that is not at all the case," Hosie writes. "The record needs clarification." A small-town daily filling page one with the equivalent of wire copy? Never! Read Hosie's lengthy reply – twice as long as the original letter.
