To the citizens of Gerald and Owensville communities

Sincerely, Randy and Debbie Raaf

We are responding to an article that was written last week and published in this paper concerning an incident with our son, Eric. We’d like everyone to remember that there are always two sides to a story and that everyone should not jump to any conclusions based on only one person’s version of the events. We wholeheartedly stand behind him and believe that the actual facts were misrepresented in the story. To anyone who knows us, or Eric, we’d ask that you believe and stand behind him. We remain hopeful that the truth will prevail.
