Comments from readers:

*This is a phenomenal piece! As a local resident, I have paused to admire this sculpture countless times, but this article gives it (and the artist) enormous depth. Having read it will definitely enhance my experience next time I see it. [E.A.] My response: “Your comment expresses exactly why I love writing my WalkAshland blog. If I can help people appreciate moments of everyday life in Ashland more deeply, I feel joy.”

*What a fascinating and well documented piece of Ashland history! Lance Locke was my husband’s Junior high school science teacher. Ashland owes a debt of gratitude to Peter Finkle for capturing this piece of local history. [K.C.]
*You enrich my life! [D.W.]
*Peter, I love every one of your photo tours! [R.K.]
*A wonderful post about Mr. Wong and family which hopefully will provide a better understanding of the lives of Chinese immigrants for Ashland non-Chinese. [J.J.]
