Good coverage of the homeless in the News-Press

I've been meaning to post this for several days. In case you missed it, there was a great story in the St. Joseph News-Press regarding the homeless population in St. Joseph last Friday. As I have come to expect and am extremely grateful for, this story and all other really great stories about people in St. Joseph who are in extreme need was written by Alonzo Weston. He is a real asset to this community. Way to go Alonzo!

Also, today's paper had a nice editorial in response to this article. I'm glad for any positive coverage of the homeless and low-income people on the editorial page given the syndicated columnists carried on the same page that regularly disparage the same population on a national level (e.g. Charles Krauthammer, etc.).

Grace and Peace,
