A little reader feedback

The Times Leader

Hats off to your columnist Sandra Snyder and staff writer Mary Therese Biebel, for their positive articles in the Feb. 3 edition of the Times Leader. Sandra's "Opinion" column highlighting the South Franklin Street renovations, plan for the Hotel Sterling and the charm of Boscov's bargain basement remind us of the Wilkes-Barre that once was and will be again. Mary Therese's article on that wonderful mainstay, Hottle's Restaurant, features quotes from many people who are committed to the success of this city. I applaud this optimistic style of reporting having long been an advocate of featuring the good things that happen in our city, and there are many. My husband has just declared his candidacy for Wilkes-Barre City Council, and it is the belief in the positive future of "The City with a Heart'' that he shares with so many that inspired him to seek a council seat. It's time for all the optimists in the city to join forces. Working as a team this city can and will come back.
