It seems that there must be more appropriate and newsworthy items than the “mugshots” of people in jail that we see in your newspaper every week. It is difficult to fathom the purpose that printing these sad and unfortunate portraits of folks who are dealing with problems and situations that most of us never have to face.

Perhaps this space in your newspaper could be dedicated to lauding folks in our community who have done something positive, courageous, noteworthy or supportive of the values and ideals that define Corvallis.

Rather than shining a light on the dark underbelly of our fair city, let’s celebrate Corvallis.
