Newspaper wrong to propose Seaman change its name

The Oct. 7 paper stated that Seaman school district should change its name to some name other than Seaman.

I find it very offensive that your paper should take the stand favoring the name change. I had three sons that attended the Seaman schools. I am very proud of the education they received in the Seaman schools.

To repeat the statistics you published: “48% of the survey are in favor of no name change.” Only “17% were in favor” of a change. The remainder of the survey were no preference or no response.

Your paper states that you feel it in the “right thing to do.”

Why or when are the minority beliefs considered to be the correct decision? Mr. Fred Seaman must have been a highly respected educator and made a great contribution to the school district for it to be named in his honor.
