LETTER: Workers praised

I just had to say a loud and grateful thank-you to all the thousands of folks who worked outside in the horribly cold weather to do their jobs. I saw men working on installing a new roof, farm workers, newspaper and mail delivery personnel, the countless utility workers on call, first responders, the truck drivers delivering the essential fuel, food, etc., the list goes on and on.

We appreciate you folks! We really do — if you were paid what you are worth, our taxes would be 90% higher. God blesses us through your labor and difficulties that you face and yet keep going because you know our safety and well-being depend on you being out there.

Carol Lee Lutsinger, Brownsville
