Thank you to the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram for the timely coverage of local topics in 2017, especially the important but unpleasant topic of ticks and Lyme disease, a scourge currently afflicting our communities.

I particularly appreciate the Press Herald’s spring issues, reminding us to be wary. The letters to the editor provide vivid and up-to-date information from local folks that should be shared.

The Press Herald is the conduit for communication about this significant new health risk.

We need a gathering – a sharing of stories – especially on the early symptomology of Lyme disease, to alert us when we are afflicted.

We can do better.
