Some positive things in the future in an otherwise sad time for Williams community

We don’t think we would be overstating things at all to say it has been a devastatingly heartbreaking couple of weeks for many in the community of Williams or those with ties to it.

A timeline or tragedy is presented beginning on today’s front page, and one can simply see for himself or herself how tough things have been. 

But just as we have highlighted these low points for Williams, today’s front page also presents a few very high points that the community can take pride in.

First off, the news of major infrastructure upgrades for school buildings is a huge plus.

We hope people can make it to the following event:

District and city officials are hosting a reception to celebrate the upcoming changes to Williams schools. The reception will be held at Granzella’s Banquet Hall on Feb. 1 from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. City businesses and agriculture professionals will be invited to attend.

Below that story on the front page, we provide a much-needed update on a 32-unit affordable housing project for seniors, slated to open its doors in Williams around the beginning of March.

We look forward to sharing more updates as the date approaches, and we’re glad that there’s some really great positive news to share with a community that might need some.
