Letters to the Editor
Are we ready to be first responders?
    I'm sitting at my desk on 9/11. Out the window I can see the flag on Main Street flying at half-staff in honor of those who died 16 years ago — the innocents and the first responders. I can't help but ask myself who are the first responders?
