Dear Editor,

Tom, Maria, all the staff at the Tri-City Times; congratulations for getting more MPA (Michigan Press Association) exceptional writing awards. As a former writer and editor for a small daily and sports stringer I know the hard work, long hours and dedication it takes.

I appreciate all that the Times and its staff do. Your paper is great – a wonderful resource that plays such a crucial role in informing us; highlighting the work businesses do – the dedication of people and athletes and students in schools.

We don’t realize how good we have it because of the Tri-City Times. Congratulations! You are valued, appreciated and vital. Thank you for all you do.
