News Contest Comment

I love the idea of a locally produced advice column and these writers do a great job of fielding the questions put to them, showing great sensitivity in responding to the gay man whose friends are misguided matchmakers, They mix humor with practicality in advising the homeowner whose neighbor is demanding he cut down his trees and do a nice job of exploring the issues and opportunities in the situation of the mom whose daughter has overheard two friends with apparent eating disorders. The questions are challenging and their responses are helpful - in ways that national advice columnists rarely are.They also make interesting reading.
