The Editor:

It is the time of year to remember and thank those who have helped make a difference in our day-to-day lives. Some we ignore or take for granted. In my case it is those who serve and protect, sitting at the border day after day in what some say has to be one of the most boring jobs in the world. To the officer who was sitting in our driveway earlier this fall at the Smuggler’s Inn and heard our fire alarm go off, saw the smoke, rushed in and put out the fire on the stove after someone put a box on the burners, I owe a tremendous debt of thanks. This saved my inn from burning.
This is just one of many times that the Border Patrol has gone unrecognized in helping out our community. For me, saving the inn will not be forgotten, and I hope others will thank officers when they help you.
As president of the Blaine Chamber of Commerce I want to also thank all of the Blaine businesses that worked hard serving our town and the many volunteers who made all of the activities special. This makes Blaine stand out as a special place to live.
