I am writing to share my appreciation for the Osage News Staff and their outstanding newspaper. Each month I look forward to reading the well written paper and learning more about the current events in our Tribe, and also the historical and personal contributions from tribal members. Since I gave up Facebook for Lent, I've had more time to read the Osage News and to truly appreciate the great work by the Osage News staff. They have impressed me with their reporting the news, photos and sharing personal perspectives like Rosemary's editorial. My favorite section of the paper is the Featured Elder, which is a remarkable narrative on an individual's life and history as it relates to our people. I truly believe that in order to know where we shall go, it's imperative to understand from where we came. The Featured Elder provides that history in a personal context. I've read many other papers and in comparison, the Osage News is a high caliber publication and surpasses other papers by far. It makes me proud that this paper reports and represents the current events of the Osage Nation. Thank you for your diligent work in creating a consistently, superior quality newspaper.
