I’m pleased to see some of the changes in the newspaper under the new ownership. I particularly like Julie Schlesselman pieces on Brookville past. She writes with such intelligence, knowledge, wit and grace.

I have one request. Please add bylines to all pieces. So many articles are submitted by others who are not on the newspaper staff. It wouldn’t take much to identify who submitted the articles, and would be so helpful to me and others, present and future.

Best wishes to all involved as you go about your important work. A good newspaper is such an essential part of a community.
