This is in reference to your Sept. 1-7 issue of “This Week” which featured some photos of the Potsdam Farmers Market on the front page. One of those photos showed the image of a young Amish girl, identified as Anna Yoder. If the “This Week” staff was unaware of the fact that the Amish people do not hold with or want their pictures taken, you have just been educated of that fact. Unless you have permission, it is rude to take such liberties by intention or out of ignorance with any person...Amish or not!
