EDITOR: As a a fairly recent transplant to the Santa Rosa area, I want to congratulate the staff and publishers of The Press Democrat for your outstanding coverage of local stories. At a time when opinion is everywhere and honest news itself is at a premium, I appreciate and look forward to opening your paper every morning. I am a former journalist who just wants to say thank you and urge you to keep up the good work. Your newspaper makes my wife and I feel at home.
