To the Editor:

Since it's a given that bad news travels much faster than good news, I think it's important we quickly give credit for the good works performed by our fellow citizens.

In that regard, I'd like to give a thumbs up to John Balasa and his immediate crew at New Milford's recycling center.

These folks are some the most efficient, professional, helpful employees who work for the town and, by extension, for us, the public.

So often in a situation like this it seems to be common to give praise and honors to the non-participants.

In this case, though, I want to say "Thanks, John. You're doing a great job.
