Charles R. Eazor: Didn’t like Summit Up column

I am writing to formally convey my disappointment in the Summit Up article of June, which is inaccurate and inappropriate on several levels.

First, it is curious that your staff “laughed” at our wording in the Doowop Denny ad but didn’t bother to notice the major error on the paper’s part. The date was to be June 13, 2010 but it was printed as May 13, 2010. Perhaps that is why I now have experienced five ads with major errors in them over the past two weeks. A little less laughing and some proof reading might be in order.

Additionally, Denny Foley does not even have a tip jar. He is well paid and does not solicit, expect or accept tips. You staff obviously made no effort to do any research or fact checking prior to writing.

Most importantly, the senior citizens in Summit County are probably the majority of the year-round adult population. To use the article to “take a shot” at them and their spending habits is inconceivable and, in my opinion, disrespectful. I was so embarrassed by the tone of the article that I wrote a personal letter of apology to every attendee at Doowop’s performance. To associate criticism of this fine group of citizens and their spending habits with one of our restaurants is unacceptable.

Columns written by the unnamed are bad enough but columns that are not properly researched and lack factual basis are even worse.

I am beginning to question the level of advertising that I have committed to as it doesn’t seem right to be part of funding such sloppy journalism.
