I am a 10-year reader of The Daily Record. This time of year is a good time to acknowledge the work of those at The Daily Record. We are fortunate to have such a fine paper at a time when many small markets are losing their dailies.

Permit me to highlight a few contributors. I appreciate the keen eye of photographer Mike Schenk. He takes us around the county every day.

I thank Tammi Moser for her writing. She always finds those doing good work in our community.

I appreciate the insights of Bev Thiel and Bobbie Randolph in their respective areas of expertise.

The Daily Record does a great job of reporting local sports. I would like to see pro sports stats once in awhile.

The paper has gone to a three-editorial format. Frankly, I would like to hear from local folks and their opinions. Three editorials is too many for me.

Lastly, I get concerned when I see full- or half-page ads. I wonder if this is strictly a financial issue or the lack of news items?

I thank those who work at The Daily Record for their ongoing committment to our community.
