I heartily agree with the Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010, editorial. We should consider the presence of The Iola Register in our community as a blessing this Thanksgiving.
It brings us local, state, national and world news and generously reports on activities and happenings of local individuals, organizations and businesses. It is part of the glue that holds us together as a community. Thought provoking and well-written editorials on many topics are offered for our consideration. (I confess that I disagree with many of the political conclusions of those editorials.)
We should not take this blessing for granted. Many communities our size no longer have a newspaper.
