This letter is in reference to the picture and caption you used in the Burner Bulletin published Apr.28 of our niece. Dana Parks' accident on Apr. 22 I wish to take this time and tell you that the picture and caption used in your paper upset the family of Dana more than you will ever know. II was in very poor taste and showed no consideration towards the feelings of her family and friends. First. a picture taken after the body had been removed should have been used to publish in the paper. Second. the reference to the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" had no bearing on the accident and should not have been an issue This has upset many people in the community and we understand many have commented to you about it Your reply to these comments the following issue were that hoped that by using this picture would remind young drivers to more careful. No one knows what caused this accident. It wasi freak accident that no one predict or prevent. All we ask is that in the future, if tragedy of this nature happen again, and I pray that never does. that you be considerate of the family's and do a better job of presenting to the public Had this been your teena daughter, I do not believe you have appreciated a display of accident in such a dramatic inconsiderate way.

I had to find six defects in s,x minutes, There were defects such as a loose seat a missing lug nut and headlights that wouldn't work.'" The entire test took over four hours.
