‘Even-sided approach’ appreciated
       Thank you so much for the comments in your editorial column (“Midland teaches 'rithmetic,” April 29) about the Midland International mathematics instructional program. The Midland staff appreciates your objective, even-sided approach to issues such as this in the Westside Pioneer. We also enjoy your paper and feel that it is not only informative, but extremely interesting and well-written. You are truly helping the Westsiders to be aware of all the unique aspects of this very special community in Colorado Springs.
       Kudos to you and your staff for bringing us this wonderful community newspaper and for striving to maintain objectivity and balance.

Barbara K. Bishop, Principal,
