Changes in paper are for the better

Dear Editor:

I know you think that what you do may not be as important as you would like it to be, but I want you to know that many of your readers consider the “small town newspaper” to be an important part of the culture and health of our town.

I want to congratulate you on the new and positive direction the paper has taken. You have eliminated a source of discontent and ferment in our town, and that was “e-sound.” I was an avid reader of and a sometimes contributor to that portion of the paper.

I always tried to point out positives in our town and remind readers that each generation rides on the shoulders of the previous generations. However, no matter what was said, so many were so bitter and hate-filled and wanted to spread that bitterness. It seemed to spread like an ugly cancer. The anonymity allowed a type of attack that was in the end harmful to the direction our community needs to take.

In closing, thank you for your service to our community. You and what you do for us is very important. In many ways, the local newspaper can determine the direction and success of a town. Again, thank you!

Ellen A. Hodgen
