I greatly appreciated Christopher Neill’s op-ed piece on why it is important to read newspapers (“Important: Subscribe to A Newspaper,” Dec. 27). I’ve long admired Mr. Neill’s science and his writing, especially his pieces concerning our fragile environment and the work of the Falmouth Water Stewards.

However, one clarification: Mr. Neill infers that the Cape Cod Times was the first news source to uncover the groundwater pollution at Joint Base Cape Cod. That isn’t true. Our own hometown newspaper, The Falmouth Enterprise, was the first to break the story. The Cape Cod Times and others quickly jumped on board. As one of the very few newspapers on the Cape and Islands that is not owned by a corporation, The Enterprise especially deserves our support and respect.
