In reference to The Talbot Boys Statue, I have been following the multitude of opinions you have printed and giving a lot of consideration to those I read. In Thursday's paper, Sept. 24, the Letter to the Editor, "No Compromise" by Jim Richardson, struck a strong chord with the thoughts I have been having for weeks. Jim's rational approach to the subject makes a lot of sense, and I, too, feel the statue should be moved to the Talbot County Historical Society's garden. After all, it is part of our history here, good or bad, that reminds us of why these young men fought and what the beliefs were at that time in our history.

This discussion has gone on long enough and the Talbot Co. Council needs to make a decision and not delay because of the pandemic. President Corey Pack needs to take another vote and end this discussion sooner than later.
