Town Square is an opinion column to which readers can submit their views. As a true community newspaper, we’re always looking for ways to include local thought and pertinent viewpoints. This column is a way to share those thoughts. Civility and fair comment will always prevail.
President William Nichols opened the Sept. 17 meeting of the Dorchester County Council with an announcement that the council would take no comments from the public regarding livestreaming [“Nichols, Newcomb, Nagel: No to livestream,” Banner, Sept. 11]. Livestreaming would allow meetings to be seen online as they occur.

Cheers for schools’ leader
THANKS TO MR. BROMWELL: I appreciate [Dorchester County Public Schools’ Interim Superintendent Dave] Bromwell’s goals and accessibility. I have been an educator for 28 years and I have not seen a more laid-out plan. I applaud him for stepping up and effectively setting up goals and already following through with his plans.

KEEP IT UP: Dave Bromwell is exactly what our schools need — hands on, caring, and working with everyone. Keep up the great work!

IN THE MIX: Finally, some involvement. This is great!

SIMPLY PUT: Mr. Bromwell is amazing.

CORRECTION: Good article, [“Sequoia returns to Cambridge,” Sept. 25] but the smokestack at Long Wharf is from FDR’s other yacht, “Potomac.” It is not a real smokestack, but it looks like one. What it hides is an elevator that the crippled FDR could use to discretely enter and leave the “Potomac.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: That is correct, thank you for the information!

Ironman Maryland 2019
INSPIRING: Thanks to all the volunteers, medical and police and safety professionals, cleaner-uppers, businesses, spectators, and everyone who had a hand in keeping everyone safe, providing a warm welcome, and making the 2019 IRONMAN Maryland a success. And congratulations to all the IMMD competitors — you are truly inspiring!

ONE OF THE BEST: Always a great race! I shall return. Congratulations to all the finishers! One of the best events I have ever done.

GRATITUDE: Thank you for the fun show! The jellies were interesting, but nothing that stopped the day. Great job and thank you volunteers and City of Cambridge.

BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, AMAZING: Absolutely amazing first Ironman experience. Cambridge and Dorchester County are beautiful. The people are wonderful. I want to go back and visit the Harriet Tubman Museum.

NICE WORK, VOLUNTEERS: The volunteers are amazing. I live on the course and everything is back to business as usual already. Tremendous clean up and much appreciated.

WOMEN’S WINNER: Congratulations, Meghan Fillnow! You are so inspiring!
