LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Wizards Deserve Hometown Love

I just loved the story by William J. Ford, “Wizards Now Have True Home-Court Advantage,” in the Feb. 9, 2017, edition. I am a big Wizards fan and I attend several games each season. There is nothing more distasteful to me as a fan (and I know to the Wizards players) than hearing all of the cheering for the visiting team at the Verizon Center. So now that the Wizards are winning a lot of games, the cheers at Verizon for the hometown Wizards are drowning out those for the visiting teams. The Wizards are playing great basketball these days and the whole area should get behind them to cheer them on. I hope to see more stories about the Wizards in your upcoming issues.

Don’t Forget to Accentuate the Positive

Every week I read The Informer cover to cover, and I have been noticing something that is kind of disturbing: the lack of positive news about Washington, D.C., and particularly Wards 7 and 8. Don’t get me wrong, I know we need to be kept informed about what’s going on around the nation, but your paper has always been the place to find positive local news. We have new councilmen in Wards 7 and 8 — are they saying anything about what they want to do? There was a national signing day for high school athletes. Were there any from the District of Columbia, and if so, where did they choose to go to school? I would think those are the types of stories we would see in the paper. I know your paper is growing, and I like to see that, but I hope you don’t forget your commitment to bringing us positive stories taking place in the District of Columbia.
