Found debit card speaks well of city

To the editor:

I was born and raised in Pittsfield, graduating from St. Joseph's in 1968. I was the very tall snare drummer in the Berkshire Pom Poms and learned the electric bass from David Grover. We've been friends now for 50 years.

On a visit to Pittsfield I lost my debit card. Someone found it and instead of trying to use it they took the time to look up my bank in Sarasota, Fla., so it could be cancelled.

All that I'm hearing is Pittsfield is "not what it used to be." That might be the general consensus, but you can't say that Pittsfield on the whole is bad. Since the news is generally bad, we don't hear the good news.

Good news, good news, read all about it! There are good, nice people in Pittsfield and the Berkshires and I'm guessing they make up the majority of the population.

Would the person who found my card please come forward? I would like to thank you in person. Meanwhile, have a blessed day.
