Local paper is important


"The person delivering Meals on Wheels to my house made it a point to tell me she reads Stories and Journeys in the Messenger every month. We briefly discussed the column I had just submitted. She laughed when I told her about my $20 bill. She offered her own response to what kindness means to her. Recently I was going through a check-out line at Seward Co-op Friendship Store. The person checking me out made it a point to tell me she enjoyed the column she read in the Southwest Connector which was the "I'm Scared......" column.

"I believe the local paper is important. Right now it is important because I never know what articles, columns or ads are going to inspire me to see things differently or do things differently in my local community life. I am prepared to be surprised by what I find in the local paper – be it the Messenger or Connector." ~ Donald L. Hammen, columnist
