I would like to move away from politics and look at a very amazing story, “1976 case not cold anymore,” published on Oct. 17, about the cold case of more than 30 years ago.

Special congratulations go to our local and state police departments who have worked so diligently and spent so much time on this long-standing murder case.

All of us should thank our extraordinary men and women for their sincere efforts. We are so fortunate to have these officers on our side.
