Letter: Grateful for hard workers in Akeley

I've learned a lot about the city of Akeley this past week. I've decided to take time to express how grateful I am for all of the helpful people of this community.

Although the senseless prank concerning the water tower caused hardship for the town, my confidence in the maintenance department, fire department, city council, and city clerk has grown.

I also had the opportunity to attend the C&C meeting Sept. 10. It was inspiring to see citizens and business owners who didn't sit around complaining and criticizing. Instead they are willing to roll up their sleeves and help in a positive way.

I realized that the true heroes of this town are not the ones who spread rumors or try to constantly cause problems. True heroes are the ones who take every opportunity to become a part of the solution, not the problem.

It is heartening to see how many heroes Akeley does have. For that I am truly grateful.
