    Congratulations Bernews on this weekly spotlight on Good News. The media is so often denigrated for covering only bad news but you show clearly that there is lots of good news right here in Bermuda, and much of it covered not only by Bernews but by our other media. Thanks for starting our weeks off in such a positive way.
