I am always amazed when I come home to visit and read the Register. Tuesday’s front page has articles on the American Queen visit, Sweatstock and Paul Doeffinger. I was privileged to see a wonderful last-minute concert performed by local talent Chase Likens! He is so talented and treats his fans so well, yet you never mentioned him or even included one picture. I thought maybe you may have saved it for Wednesday’s paper — still nothing!
American Idol did not really give Chase fair treatment when he was participating (not including his “Sing For Your Life” performance for everyone to watch — they included 22 of the 24 contestants, but not Chase), to name just a few glaring impartial treatments.
Is there a reason why you choose not to give him some publicity or help out his career? He obviously has the talent and can sing as well or better than most of the country stars that are out there today. I think Point Pleasant should give him all the time and attention he deserves in pursuing his career.

(Editor’s Note: The Point Pleasant Register was not notified of a “last-minute concert” by Chase Likens and has printed several articles about Likens in the past, the last one having been published only last month to promote his concert at the Point Pleasant Sternwheel Regatta which was unfortunately canceled due to the storms that passed through the area. The Point Pleasant Register has also covered Likens’ appearances on American Idol and his homecoming this spring at Point Pleasant Junior/Senior High School. The staff at the Point Pleasant Register respectfully disagrees with any insinuation that it has not or does not support Likens.)
