Appreciate these stories | Letter

I wanted you to know that I appreciate these stories about what’s going on in our community and I think it’s important for people to know that just like anywhere else, we have crime here. Our islands are not the idyllic utopia that new people often believe it is.

To gloss over important stories like these and bury them in the back page would be censorship. Thank you for your good reporting and giving us the story of what’s really going on in our communities.
