Did ‘Fires’ headline fan the flames?

I heartily agree with Karen Penegor’s letter stating that your headline about Deb Edwards was inappropriate. What were you trying to do with such an inflammatory headline – incite controversy to get more people to read your paper? Was it worth the cost? Your headline read like a personal attack on Deb Edwards, and I hope people realize it should actually be nothing other than a poor reflection on the Summit Daily, not on Deb Edwards, nor on The Summit Foundation. Also your inflammatory headline can only serve to fan the fire of controversy for a time-tested and well intentioned nonprofit organization. Do you have an agenda to criticize or detract from the most successful grant awarding agency in our community? What’s up? As a member of this community for over 25 years, a past Summit Foundation Board of Trustee member, and personal friend of Deb Edwards, I feel you acted wrong and should issue an apology to Deb and The Summit Foundation Board for such an inflammatory headline. Leave the good people of The Summit Foundation alone to do their good work instead of publishing carelessly worded headlines in an effort to stir up controversy.
