Letter: We bridge players thank The Tribune

(Rick Bowmer | AP file photo) Copies of The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper are shown on April 20, 2016, 2020, in Salt Lake City.

On behalf of all your many bridge-playing readers who, for many years, enjoyed the bridge column published in the daily paper, we want to give you a great big thank you.

Although the many bridge readers are a miniscule number compared to the number of your subscribers and loyal fans, we thank you for your sensitivity when you took to heart our petition and plea to reinstate the column now written by Phillip Alder (an excellent columnist and teacher).

We are among the thousands who have subscribed and read The Salt Lake Tribune for our entire lives and are very saddened and heartbroken that, due to changing times, that your paper won’t be landing on our doorsteps early every single morning. For this select group, nothing goes with a good cup of coffee like the newspaper and our first cup goes best with the bridge column.

The Tribune’s owners, columnists and delivery people are top-notch professionals who have been the lifeblood of our city and state for over a well over a century (149 years to be exact). Hopefully we can still see their work and dedication weekly in printed form and digitally daily for years to come.

Again, thank you. It’s a credit to all of you for sticking with the daily printed page for as long as you have.

Bette Richins, Salt Lake City
