Newspapers are community

The Beachcomber may not be the best deal, but it is the “deal” that we have on the island.

Letter to the Editor:

What would Thursday morning be like without The Beachcomber in the box?

I have spent my life trying to get the best deal. Now, suddenly, it is not about the “deal” but about community.

The Beachcomber may not be the best deal, but it is the “deal” that we have on the island.

Way too late, it seems, I have become aware of how crucial it is to have investigative reporters and newspapers. I am, finally, seeing the light and supporting The Washington Post (online) and the New York Times (online).

I have always resisted subscriptions to newspapers because of the huge amount of recycling I have to do as a result. The online “papers” are just my style.

I will be sending $25 each month just so I can continue to have a joyous Thursday morning with The Beachcomber in my box!
