Correspondence

     I’ve been reading the Bay Weekly since the office was in Deale.  I like the addition to the new format including the tides and moon chart for fishermen.      Just a suggestion, the trails, parks, fishing locations, boat launch sites, and nature preserves of Anne Arundel County are on this site: aacounty.org/locations-and-directions. 
  Oh, that cover?         Hi! I must tell you how great the cover is! Something appropriate UNLIKE that cover a year or two ago that had a half-naked old lady on there... This cover has a nice color to it. It catches your eye as you try to figure out what those eyes belong to. It encourages us to ‘get outside’! Even in winter.   
        A SOUPer Bowl WIN for the Light House Shelter      Over 200 people turned out Sunday afternoon for the 14th Annual SOUPer Bowl Lunch at Heritage Baptist Church, raising $4300 in two hours for the Light House Homeless Prevention and Support Center in Annapolis. This total surpassed the $3000 goal and set a record for most money raised in the event’s history.

Thoughts on new CBM Bay Weekly:

     As a fairly long time subscriber to Chesapeake Bay Magazine and a reader of Bay Weekly I am very glad that CBM is continuing to make Bay Weekly available. I like being able to read (in handy portable dead tree form) some of the content of your Bay Bulletins that also come in my email, and then catch up on other news when at the computer. I am glad that features such as Creature Feature, Gardening, and Sporting Life that I really like from Bay Weekly are continuing.
So Barn Quilts Are What Those Are Re: Calvert’s Barn Quilt Trail, Nov. 21, www.bayweekly.com/node/51390       Thank you Bay Weekly and Bill Sells for enlightening me about the quilt designs in place throughout Calvert County. I pass two of them each day on my commute and wondered what their purpose was. It took a free newspaper to explain the cause, whereas the county paper I subscribe to never mentioned them.
Already Missing Bay Weekly       Over the years, you’ve given us countless bits of news. However, the news of discontinuing the truly beloved newspaper that you bless us with each Thursday is inconceivable. From small towns to even the biggest cities, printed newspapers have been lost. The world of online information is a wonderful thing, but it simply does not fit everywhere.
What We Like about Bay Weekly        I wanted you to know I will miss the Bay Weekly. It has been a delightful addition to my reading materials, even though I subscribe to three dailies … too many. Your paper covers topics that are appealing and interesting, not to be found in the others. I do understand that print papers are a struggling breed, sad to say, and finding someone who wishes to follow you in that endeavor is unlikely among the on-line reader population.

What We Like about Bay Weekly       Don’t know what it takes to convince you to continue, but if it’s a large group of volunteers — retired professionals or otherwise — I wouldn’t hesitate to ask, if I were you. You may be surprised at what you get. I’d be glad to step in, for one, and could convince some others, I’m sure, to do the same.

The Best of Times      My heart skipped a beat when I read it. Giving up the ship? Not my ship, with Sandra, Alex and others I remember so fondly.      My first introduction to the paper was as a delivery person. I loved it.
Back in 1993 …
      Your paper, which you built from the ground up, is a mainstay for the extended Anne Arundel County community. All of us who live, work or just visit the area turn to your pages for amusing, inspiring, informative articles and a calendar full of fun things to do!
