To the editor: 

I just want to commend you for the excellent edition of Friday’s newspaper. It was one of the most enjoyable editions I have ever read. 

Ashley Hodge’s feature article about Louise Jennings was especially heart warming, and I especially like those kinds of features. 

Also the article about the new species of tick was both informative and super scary. 

And Pat Robert’s poem “The Value of a Penny” also inspired me and drove home the value of the little things we do for people, a very important message for people today.

I also want to convey my heartfelt gratitude for publishing my little poem and for providing a space in the paper for the aspiring poets in South Boston and Halifax. Not many newspapers are kind enough to do that.
