Letter of thanks: Thank you, Miner

My first physical exertion every morning is to walk to the driveway and pick up the Daily Miner. The newspaper is my coffee cup companion and always starts my day on a positive note.

I would wish the sincerely thank the Miner for including two stories a couple of weeks ago, both of which were a pleasant departure from the nauseous, incessant political drama.

One story was about the white rhino which had to be put down and the joy the zoo caregivers derived from their experiences with the animal.

The other was the one about the death and legacy of the baseball pitcher who pitched the “shot heard around the world” and the absence of animosity, although years later it was admitted by Bobby Thompson that the catcher’s sign was stolen and he knew a high inside fastball was coming.

I also enjoy reading Hubble Ray Smith’s feature “Minding Your Business.”

I realize the Miner is obligated to report mundane local political controversy and the redundant crime page, but special interest “human” stories and local brevities are a refreshing interlude and spice up the content of my coffee companion.

Keep them coming.
