To the Publisher, Editors and Reporters:

I have read the Current every week for years, and the time has come to thank you for the service your paper provides.

First, I have studied the D.C. Public Schools since the 1970s, and the Current provides the best, most accurate and useful press coverage there is. Your articles provide more information about the school system in a single weekly edition, than the daily papers do in seven days. Your reporters have consistently provided good, detailed information and thoughtful analysis on important system-wide issues. This is a real service to public school parents and community members and many of them have said as much to me.

Second, the Current gives me news and information about what is happening in my neighborhood that I can get nowhere else. These reports are important to me as a resident, in relating to my neighbors and maintaining the quality of life in my neighborhood.

When I arrive home Wednesday evening, I read the current before I do anything else. (I also dream a little over the real estate ads, since these are the houses I'd want if we were to move). Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
Ms. Levy

Dear Mr. Kennedy:

I want to compliment you and your staff on the outstanding Voters Guide that you and your staff published before the recent primary elections. As one who worked for many years as News Editor of the Washington Bureau of The New York Times, responsible for pulling together the daily report, I think I have some appreciation of the professional, dedicated work required of you and your staff to publish such a section. The result was a well-organized, well-edited, informative section that was very useful to the reader in exercising judgment at the poll.

Just to test my opinion, I asked my wife, also a former reporter, what she thought the section She replied: "I found it very useful and far superior to what was put out by the Washington Post." Needless to say, I concur completely in her opinion.

I should add that The Current's great contribution in keeping the local community informed is not limited to election time and a special section. Far more than The Post, I turn to The Current to keep up with what is going on in my neighborhood.

Keep up your good work.

Sincerely yours,
John W. Finney
