Letter To The Editor: Bomb Scare

By Lynne Compton

How refreshing it is that in this town of relative calm unusual things get noticed. Friday it was a false alarm in a cooler at the wrong place that got noticed.

We as a people in these modern times most not take everything for granted. We should not live in fear but realize that sometimes a cooler may not contain a left over picnic someone forgot but something meant to harm and destroy. 

Kudos to the police officer that noticed and the firemen, bomb squad and other police officers who answered the call not knowing that they might be in great danger.

It’s a good thing that happened Friday all the way around for it made all of us stop and reflect on the fact that others put their lives on the line for us everyday that they go to work.
