To the Spectrum:

Congratulations to The Spectrum and staff for 15 years of superb community service to New Milford and the surrounding communities!

I look forward to receiving my copy of The Spectrum each Friday in the mail, and read it cover to cover.

It's so relaxing to sit down and peruse a newspaper without having to sit in front of a computer screen.

I, and many of Warren's residents, grew up in the New Milford area before settling in Warren. The news and human interest stories from the entire region have special meaning to those of us who call this area home.

Those who have moved here from other areas love to learn more about the region, both historically and currently.

We can always count on Norm Cummings to show up at our Memorial Day parade, Warren Fall Festival and other "big-time" events in our small town.

Spectrum reporters check in frequently with the town to discover what's happening here and to get our take on events pertinent to the area.

On a personal level, it's really entertaining to find out what our childhood friends (and their children, and grandchildren) are up to these days.

For many years, The Spectrum has been the glue tying together the small and not so small communities comprising the New Milford area.

Keep up the good work!
