Dear Bay Weekly:
I’m really glad you’re trying out having puzzles in the paper!
I especially enjoyed working the Sudoku, and hope you will continue with that.
I like the local, Annapolis references in the crossword puzzle, but I find that the squares, and the numbers in the squares, are a little small for me to work with comfortably. If you were to make the whole puzzle larger, that would take up more space, and you might not want to do that. An overall smaller puzzle (less squares) might solve the square and number size problem, but, well, you figure that one out.
Thanks again for including puzzles, especially Sudoku.

Valentines to Veterans, Revisited
Dear Bay Weekly:
We are very happy to have such wonderful support from Bay Weekly and Mr. Burton in his Feb. 6 column [Letters in the Can: Vol. xv, No. 6] to help show appreciation for our veterans. Our veterans were overjoyed at the tremendous gesture demonstrated by the surrounding community. Efforts like this truly warm the hearts of our inpatient veterans.

The March 15 story “Is There a Pearl in Maryland’s Oysters” [Vol. xv, No. 11] is not meant to imply or suggest that either Bob Evans or J.R. Gross were the whistleblowers on watermen who broke the law by taking sanctuary oysters in January. “I did not know nor could I reveal if I did know who turned in those who broke the law. I do know it was not Evans or Gross,” says author Mick Blackistone.
