Please join us at community college in honoring our country's vets

To The Daily Sun,

On behalf of the Lakes Region Community College community and its Student Veteran Association, I would like to take the opportunity to invite members of our local community to our annual Veterans Appreciation event.

Since the college is closed on Veterans Day, we will be holding our ceremony the day after, on Thursday, Nov. 12, at noon in the college's new Academic Commons. We will be honoring all who served their country in uniform and will have veterans of different military branches and generations speak. Refreshments will be served.

Please come out and honor our veterans.

I'm sure young motorist I spotted considered officer to be a hero

To The Daily Sun,

With all the unjust and outright slanderous press that police officers across this country are receiving, I thought this story noteworthy.

This past Thursday morning (Nov. 5) I observed a Belmont police officer kneeling beside a car on Rte. 106 changing a tire for a young motorist. His cruiser was positioned behind the disabled vehicle with the driver safely off to the side of the busy roadway.

When this officer swore an oath to "protect and serve" he may not have envisioned this particular scenario, but I believe he was fulfilling that oath. Though this act of kindness may not rise to the level of being considered heroic, I'm sure that this young woman believed him to be her hero that morning.
