BDN outside editor John Holyoke obtained this e mail from Terri Titcomb, who shared a letter penned by her husband, Stephen Titcomb, explaining why he welcomed hunters, hikers and campers onto his land. Stephen Titcomb handed away in 2016, and his spouse ultimately decided to share his feelings just lately.

I appreciate studying your column and every single 12 months I consider about sending this letter on to you as looking season ways. Guess this is the yr!” Terri Titcomb wrote. “My late partner wrote this and adamantly thought in not submitting our land. Just preferred to share it with you and your readers if you see in good shape.”
