Dear Editor: Let me begin by saying how much I enjoy your paper. Having moved away a year ago, its so nice to have a comprehensive resource to keep up with the news and events on the Shore, it truly gives me a way to feel so much more connected. Your...
Dear Editor: Just a shoutout that after being on the Shore for 20 years now, your paper is THE BEST. It is one of my favorite reads and I look forward to cover-to-cover reading each week. I find Linda Cicoira to be an exceptional writer in every aspect of newspaper...
