Letter to the editor praising recent article

Dear editor,

I’m writing to commend the Hillsboro Free Press, editor Laura Fowler Paulus, and Jenna Dickerson for the March 15 article, “Local Woman Makes Tough Decision.”

It was community journalism at its best. Excellent!

Like most Free Press readers, I don’t know Jenna Dickerson, but, oh my, I sure do admire her courage, her strength, her commitment the betterment of others. Her story served as a reminder for each of us to pause and count our blessings, past and present.

As long as we’re handing out bouquets, I’ll set one aside for Joel Klaassen. Like Dickerson, he’s taken us to places we’d rather not go. Still, we need to know what’s out there.
