New paper format a positive

To the Editor:

The merger of several papers into the broader Miami Valley Today worried me at first.

Needlessly. The broader and wider coverage has exposed all of the county to activities, events, news, and ideas that were previously closeted amongst a small circle of readers.

I see the eventual breakdown of petty municipal rivalries as we all understand the needs to work together for broader, deeper successes.
