Refreshing insight from Girl Scouts


I thoroughly enjoyed reading the letters to the editor submitted last week by the Girl Scouts ("Girl Scouts write in," Nov. 6). It is refreshing to see the 10-year-old perspective of our town and the optimism behind their proposed solutions.

I hope parents will encourage children of all ages to write to their newspaper with their concerns or appreciation over what is happening in the community and to actively participate in making this the city they want it to live in.

Hopefully this kind of civic involvement results in citizens willing to participate in the process of Democracy, including actually getting out to the polls to vote.

I find it absolutely appalling that in a city so interested in its quality of life, that so few voters actually participated in the process that has the largest impact on their community.
