We wanted to commend you on your Nov. 11 article on Cranberries. Its depth and breadth on the subject was very enlightening. We hope your paper will undertake to explore other topics to such an extent.

Since I taught for several years at the Naturopathic University in Portland, I was already familiar with the medicinal uses of cranberries but I was not educated on the other Native American uses of the berry. When we learned of the Cranberry Festival Weekend in Bandon, we really want to go and experience everything Cranberry.

We have passed this wonderful article around to friends who don’t subscribe to the Triplicate and we intend to bring it to the attention of the faculty of our local elementary school. We hope that they might even consider a field trip to a cranberry farm in Bandon.

Thank you so much for publishing the article and enriching our lives.
