Say it ain't so, Dan. Argus LEader goes for community reaction in the Sutton/Page affair
Most didn't want to talk about it.Read it alll here in today's Argus Leader.
Chad Weber, a chiropractor, embodied the spirit of many.
"I've got my opinions, but I'm going to keep them to myself," he said.
Still, several people spoke up in defense of Sutton.
Val Smith chalked up the accusation against Sutton to a political hatchet job. Smith, who called Sutton "Danny," said she's been a friend for years.
"I think most people support Danny," she said.
"He's done so much for the school. He's done so much for the town. He volunteered hours and hours at the school. He would never do anything like that. He's not that type of person."
Verna Keiser, in town from Colman, said, "I don't know what to make of it. I know it's bad timing."The bad timing went beyond the election. Thursday was opening night of the play "Fiddler on the Roof." Sutton had a prominent part in the community play.
Kris Larson of Aberdeen said she went to college with Sutton. She hadn't spoken at length with him in five years, but she said the Dan Sutton she knows wouldn't have done anything inappropriate.
Larson also was involved in a church program with Sutton. She called him a "strong Christian."
