This letter is a general apology to all woodcutters and wood customers that were offended by the article written by the Yukon News about the new wood processor at Hurlburt Enterprises.
I object to the headline “Firewood without flakes.” The negative tone was apparently an attempt at humour by the writer and editor.
I asked both the writer and editor of the Yukon News to apologize to you for this but they refused. I sincerely apologize to you on their behalf.
I also disagree with the article’s contention that I intend to make small-time woodcutters obsolete. It is not our intention to put anyone out of business.
In fact, I intend to increase the use of firewood by making it more available year-round. We have logs and processed wood to purchase by anyone, including woodcutters. This will make it possible for you to have a year-round supply as well.
Some of you are taking advantage of this already and I thank you.
If anyone wants to call me for a direct apology, my cell number is 335-5192.
