Dear editor I would like to thank your paper for its overall balance in reporting. All too often we are subjected to negative articles in the major media that represent an inaccurate impression of present circumstances and help create and uncomfortable vision of the future. It is our local press that continues to maintain the less dramatic but positive news that helps provide us all with encouragement. With that in mind, I would like to express our appreciation for your ongoing support of ecological sustainability in Halton Hills. We continue to work hard to educate the public about changing conditions that affect their environment, but it would be increasingly more difficult if we had to work within a vaccuum. Your press has been supportive over the past year, and it is much appreciated. Recently, Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources (P.O.W.E.R.) held its first environmental sustainability conference for students of Halton Hills. The conference took place at Georgetown District High School and involved up to ten young people from each of the schools of our town. Almost 100 students took part in this full-day experience that culminated in the formation of environmental action plans for each of their schools. P.O.W.E.R. would like to publically thank the dozens of volunteers who put in hundreds of hours to make this day such a success. These are all Halton Hills' residents working to help others from Halton Hills. Without their continued support and passion for the environment, none of our many activities could occur. We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to the staff and students of GDHS for their amazing co-operation-- especially teacher Laura Hudgin, who is already developing a national reputation on environmental issues, and the principal Ron Maruya. Their continued commitment to the environment, and their assistance in putting on the conference helped to make it the major success that it was. Once again, your paper's continued support for local endeavours is much appreciated. Please keep up the good work. Leslie Adams President Protect Our Water and Environmetal Resources (P.O.W.E.R.)
