Increase coverage of Scouts

My name is Sam Stewart and I am a Star Scout with Boy Scout Troop 99 in Lantana. I am currently working on my Communications Merit Badge. One of the requirements is that I am to send an email to a local newspaper to express my opinion or share information on any subject.

I am of the opinion that local Boy Scout Troops do not receive adequate coverage of their service projects and other good turns that they do for local communities.

If more coverage was given, it would also give Boy Scouts a better name. This also would let parents and kids see how Boy Scouts is a great thing to partake in. I ask that you please consider my opinion and please provide more coverage.

Thanks for your time.

Sam Stewart,

Attractive ideas

Your editorial solicited ideas to attract residents to spend money in Denton. I have two suggestions:

1. Have your subscription department accept subscribers to the DRC even if they live outside Denton city limits. When we moved to Cross Roads five years ago, we were told that we could not subscribe because we were outside the city limits.

A couple of months ago, my Dallas Morning News carrier inadvertently threw a DRC newspaper on my drive. I called and got the usual turndown; but then I explained that my carrier must carry both newspapers and I was able to get a subscription.

2. Extend the water and sewer east along U.S. Highway 380 to the city limits. It currently stops around the U.S. Copper plant. This would attract restaurants and commercial development, which in turn will attract U.S. 380 residents to come west.

3. The DRC can also help by writing more articles that are of interest to the residents along U.S. 380. They read the articles, see the ads for coming attractions in Denton and "voila."

We love to come into Denton as do most of our neighbors.
