I would like to congratulate you on your “Cultural Compass” column. The author, John Botes, write knowledgefully and well about events of interest to us. In fact, we use his column to guide our decisions in this area. Personally, I do not care to read about the various crimes that occur here, but I suppose the community news must cover this. I am enclosing a check for a subscription just to have Mr. Botes’ column.
