To the editor:
I would like to thank and publicly recognize my unsung heroes, Amy McHugh and the Department of Public Works. For many years, the puddles on the rail trail have grown and grown. In some stretches it was impossible to pass without soaking my shoes or attempting to climb through brambles. The DPW team has been filling in the puddles and then covering them with crushed rock. I walked the path this morning, after a night of rain, and was able to transverse my entire way without ever stepping in a puddle. Thank you!
For anyone else with a lake-sized puddle on the rail trail, the contact point is email@example.com.
