For my Boy Scout Communications merit badge [needed to become an Eagle Scout], I have to write to the editor of my local newspaper sharing my opinion on any topic I choose. I would like to share my opinion regarding the “Longer ‘Night Out’ in Milton” article that was published in the Aug. 2, 2012 issue of the Milton Independent.

A few days ago, I was working on completing another requirement by watching a Milton Selectboard meeting through the LCATV website when I heard that they planned to extend the time of the event. I thought that it was a wise decision so that more community members could attend in a wider range of time. I am also pleased to hear that the event is geared toward the promotion of safety and crime prevention in a fun way. Although I will not be attending the event this year, I hope that it becomes more and more popular as the years go on. I think that your article was a great way to note changes in the event but also to promote the event.
