Your View: Enjoyable reading

CARTHAGE, Mo. — I enjoyed reading the columns of Jo Ellis and Andra Bryan Stefanoni in Monday’s Globe (Jan. 27).

Jo Ellis is a friend of mine, and Andra Stefanoni is someone I feel should be my friend. Both women write on subjects dear to my heart or things in which I have an intense interest. Both love the outdoors and nature as much as I do.

I can’t forget the column Stefanoni wrote about the Spring River Inn, which meant so much to countless area residents during its years of existence in Riverton, Kan., on the west bank of Spring River. Our family was one of those that spent many happy occasions there and still miss it greatly.

It ranked with Missouri’s Big Spring Inn in Neosho and Ginger Blue near Anderson as unforgettable restaurants. It’s tragic that every one of them was destroyed by fire.
