To the Editor:
I was questioning of you’ve at any time finished an report on the record of your have very little paper. As a young adult I beloved looking at it in the 1980s. I was a teenage transplant right here from Florida and LBI was introduced to me in 1980 when my very best friend introduced me down to Holgate where her father experienced a spot.
I have loved the Island ever given that and a decade later on introduced my young ones very typically in the late ’80s and ’90s. I constantly picked up your paper and assumed it had the most clever name. I’d read it entrance to again each and every time.
Now I’m a grandmother, and my grandson and granddaughter experienced their 1st beach check out at any time in Ship Bottom. I grabbed your paper once again the other working day and see it still has the very same attraction. I was wondering when it was founded. Have editors adjusted often? I’d adore to see an article on the historical past of it. Thank you for holding this paper as a important allure of the Island.
