Dear Editor,

Congratulations for your diverse selection of stories. I look forward to reading each issue! Your coverage of local community events, sports and “people-news” continues to be excellent. Your front page layout with captivating headlines and photos draws the reader to finish each article on the other pages.

I also want to thank you for including articles of national and international importance, especially the ones this fall related to the impacts of global warming on Hoosiers’ daily lives. I hope readers of this paper will be following the current UN Climate Change talks in Katowice, Poland, and will be praying for courage for UN delegates from about 200 nations to define concrete guidelines for climate action that will further reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their home countries. I also challenge each one of us to do what we can in our own way to lessen our own carbon footprint.
