The season has come to an end and many of you are headed north for the summer. Seems like just yesterday we were putting together the holiday gift guide, for goodness sakes. Where has the time gone?
We will miss you, but we won’t stop reporting, writing and photographing the local news.
And here’s some good news: You won’t have to miss a thing while you’re summering elsewhere.
There are two ways for you to follow our island dispatches. You can read us online at www.thecoastalstar.com, or, you can subscribe by completing a form found on Page 25 of this edition or online under “subscriptions.” Tell us where you would like us to mail your paper and send us $20 to cover postage.
So many of you have told us that reading The Coastal Star is like receiving a letter from a good friend, and good friends should stay in touch, even — or especially — during hurricane season.
Of course, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the big storms will pass us by this summer, but if they don’t, we’ll do our best to keep you on top of things. Watch us online for timely updates.
While you’re away, we will continue to keep a watchful eye on city hall, local events, and yes, even the sea turtles.
In this edition, you’ll notice the ArtsPaper is on hiatus, too, until the season preview comes out in October. Until then, ArtsPaper editor Greg Stepanich’s arts column can be found in The Coastal Star.

Whether you leave or stay here, have a happy, healthy and fun summer.
