Letter to the Editor

Help for Eagle Scout is appreciated

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

To the editor:

We would like to thank Bruce Watkins at the Jackson Parks Department for making an Eagle Scout project possible for our son, Andrew.

Without the parks department's aid and help from local nurseries, this would not have been possible.

It is a great honor near the Fourth of July to have the flagpole redone and to honor the veterans who have served this country -- and for our son to learn an act of service from others helping so generously.

JOHN R. and MARTHA N. THOMPSON, Jackson
