We would like to thank the Steamboat Pilot & Today for a most rewarding experience. Having the opportunity recently to serve on the Editorial Board as community representatives proved to be meaningful and educational. A newspaper in any community is an easy target as people love to point out the flaws in any organization. We have to say that from this experience we came away with a renewed sense of respect and admiration for the integrity of the staff. A conscious effort always was made to examine each issue from different vantage points to ensure balanced opinions. Our input sincerely was sought after, and our ideas always were listened to. The time and effort the staff puts into making certain facts are correct and research is properly completed for an editorial was impressive. We commend the staff and urge community members to be involved in this important process.
