Thousand Islands did its graduation poorly

Thank you for publishing the article “Fighting off COVID-19” in the April 19 edition of the Watertown Daily Times/Advance News.

This timely article documented the experiences of Michael Powers with COVID-19. An Ogdensburg native, Mr. Powers works as a corrections officer representative and city councilor.

In spite of the severity of his symptoms, Mr. Powers remarkably was able to keep a journal by date of his experiences.

Although I don’t believe he contracted the infection locally, it describes his sickness and recovery so well. His was not just a statistics story from St. Lawrence County.

May Mr. Powers enjoy a healthy summer golfing and fishing. Thanks to him for telling his story and to the Watertown Times for publishing it.
