Keeping city safe

As I was comfortably sitting out the storm the night of Dec. 19 , my lights began to flicker and I stopped to think that if the power went out, there are men who would have to get out in that nasty weather and make the necessary repairs. Yuk!

So I am writing to urge my fellow citizens to call or drop a line to our police, fire, and public utilities and express gratitude to them for keeping us safe.

Personally speaking, I sometimes (often) take them for granted.
