More pressing issues
By Kris Williams
February 27, 2010
Mr. Hanger is very quick and obviously a very educated man, and
with that being said what he lacks is some common sense. In
a town the size of Ketchikan a public bashing of another business
or another resident is just uncouth. Voicing your opinion about
a personal experience with a product or service is one thing,
and I've had issues with my phone line not working for the last
six months and can't get a repair man; but bad mouthing other
tax preparers, or for that matter another citizen, well that's
just not classy. I've lived here my whole life and people here
have more respect, and values than Mr. Hanger has shown on this
I only write this because my mother owns one of the "loan
shark" tax businesses you continue to put down. While you
consider her a loan shark she doesn't require anyone to take
the "instant" refund, She can submit a tax return the
same way you can without any finance charges or "loans".
The difference is she will do it with a smile, and the fees
she charges stay in the community and don't leave town when the
season is over. My mother employs up to 10 people all of whom
are local year-round residents.
I usually just read these letters to stay informed on what is
happening in the community, but Mr. Hanger's letters continue
to bother me. Mr. Hanger is unprofessional and quite frankly
rude. I haven't taken the time to write this in hopes of starting
some sort of battle of wits because I'm sure Mr. Hanger is a
more educated man than I. However, I know that I am more respectful,
more polite, and more honest than he could ever hope to be.
I only hope that maybe now
we can get past Mr. Hanger's childish banter and get back to
reading about more pressing issues. Thank you for your time,
and I am sorry for the lengthy response.
