It’s great to read stories about the community helping others [$10,000 reward offered in rape case, Oct. 2]. Usually in the news we only hear the bad. Unfortunately, a young girl was raped and the suspect is still at large, but it is nice to see the community come together. The police work hard to find these criminals, but there is so much people in the community could be doing to help. Just keeping others notified and handing out flyers is doing so much to help this girl and her family. It’s nice to see there are still great citizens out there.
