Opinion: Thanks for reporting on the bright spots

The story “Our Town” in the Aug. 18 edition is so colorful and so supportive of our gem of a library in our Jewel of a village. Thank for the placement on B1, which is sure to encourage attendance.

The article itself is truly good reporting which is doubly welcome since it avoids the “if it bleeds, it leads” criteria so often seen elsewhere. Bravo, Will Bowen and thank you, Phyllis Pfeiffer.
