I applaud the Littleton Independent’s efforts to seek community input via a survey. I completed the survey but neglected to mention how much I appreciate your return to an editorial, “From the Editor.”

During the past several years, the newspaper has never seemed complete without an editorial. Kudos to the south metro editor, Thelma Grimes, for focusing on issues surrounding civility in public discourse. She is right, it is beyond the pale that our local LPS officials have been subjected to death threats and other vile comments and threats.

Congratulations to the Littleton Independent for 134 years in publication. I am excited about the new direction you are taking our hometown newspaper.
