To all of the people in the Tri-state area who are volunteering their time and money to make sure that needy families and their children have a happy holiday celebration.
To the Friends Advancing Intercultural Relations and the Jefferson County NAACP, for their sponsorship of a Dec. 13 forum on race relations. Racial discord is a major issue facing our society, and any effort to solve it is welcome.
To U.S. Cellular, for its proposal to put a 260-foot cell phone tower near historic Harpers Ferry, W.Va. We can't believe this thing can't be camouflaged or moved to another site.
To the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church, for its fight to evict a non-denominational group from the chapel at Eyler's Valley, where they are (horrors!) holding candlelight services.
