This article was written as a bit of a 'good news story' in the wake of the pasting that Seymour got from the TV program 'Two on the Great Divide'. While there are plenty of errors in it and some artistic license with my quotes, I feel that it it give a good impression of what we have been up to.
The local papers were full of letters to the editors for weeks after the first episode of the aforementioned program appeared, I thought that I'd include this one, which was the precursor to the article written above.
