Collectively, we think you have outshone your competition in all the things that make journalism a competitive business. That is not easy to do as your staff, no doubt, tells you often.
What is most notable is the fact that we can now say, and mean, that we have a local newspaper that represents us in a way that no one would ever doubt is really trying to represent all of us — both as a community, and, when called upon, as individuals in that community.
We hope you can and will continue this more-than-welcomed effort. We recognize that it is not easy but it is very refreshing for all of us and greatly appreciated.
