Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Thank you so much to the honest, hardworking, helpful people of the Vineyard Transit Authority. You are heroes. You saved me seven years ago and again on Monday.

When you misplace your little bag with bank cards, personal information, keys and basically your life, you panic. Thank God the VTA really and truly looks out for you. Islander or visitor, they try to help and avert frustration and possible serious consequences. They help.

My stupid, humidified actions did not result in theft and horrible consequences, they resulted in a renewal of good, kind, honest people. Thank you VTA.
