Thanks for the wonderful article on swimmer Megan Romano. I hope that other people will realize how much of a talent she is, and what it takes to get where she is - for her and her parents. It is about time that Megan's accomplishments moved out of Neighborhood Times and into the Sports section.

Respect for Andreychuk
I was highly offended by the suggestion that Dave Andreychuk should "graciously accept retirement and allow the Lightning to shift his salary to those younger and faster players." This is not the way to treat such an integral part of our Stanley Cup champions. The experience and leadership Dave brings to this team cannot be measured and is very much valued by those "younger and faster players." To treat Dave this way would be totally disrespectful. His decision to retire should be up to him.
