Our son, Alex Ranson, is marrying Whitney Tiernan at the First Presbyterian Church in Delray Beach at the end of April. Whitney's parents are Mike and Lisa Tiernan of Delray Beach. We have posted an engagement announcement and will post a wedding announcement in the Palm Beach Post for a fee, but wondered if your paper has a process for such announcements for a fee. I am the mother of the groom, just trying to help out. Thanks, Sheryl Ranson
Hi Mary Kate,
I am trying to get in touch with reporter Tom Collins who writes for your publication.
Would you have his contact information?
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or please call 685-8883.
You should write a story on all the burglaries on the island in Delray Beach lately. My wife and I went to dinner one evening, only to come home and learn that we had been burglarized. Professionals, no fingerprints, went through two steel doors with deadbolt locks engaged. Only took good jewelry (left the cheaper stuff). I checked the local police website and learned that there have been 21 burglaries within blocks of our home during the past 6 months. I called one of the victims randomly and learned that the MO of her break-in was identical to ours. I believe there is a "serial burglar" in the area and have an opinion as to who it might be (door to door salesmen). I will be happy to speak with you if you are interested.
Maty Kate, we are having a problem with the USPS at Briny Breezes and it has to do with a certain class of mail that requests adress verification by the vendor. If the mail is forwarded (most of the residents do this to their Northern address) the vendor (most bills use this including FPL, citizens etc.) requests that they be notified of the address change to udate their permanent address file. The Boynton Beach Post office will not allow Briny to forward this mail by crossing out the request text. This is causing, in my case the August FPL bill to be finally forwarded by Briny (with new postage in a separate envelope with new postage affixed), to be delivered to me in Oct. The Citizens bill to be returned to the sender and luckily we called and arranged payment over the phone. Briny picks up the mail delivers to full time residents and forwards mail up North. All the mail you don't need gets forwarded fine but the address correcition mail is being sent back to Briny for what they consider proper handling, which means gouging us for additional postage. Calls to Boynton Post Office fall on deaf ears, that is if you are lucky enough for anyone to answer. Briny, I feel, is doing the USPS a favor by providing this service and not insisting that the USPS do this service that every other Post office does for free. Knowing that our Coastal community has many people that live in Condo type units, is anyone else having problems like this. I thought this might be a forum for this question, thanks, Paul and Anita
Am delighted to be a member. The Coastal Star will begin coverage of South Palm Beach next month so I am inviting my friends from our town. I do have a few questions. Perhaps you will be able to direct me to the source or guide me as you appear to be a pro!
2 - I live in South Palm Beach. Due to my zip code of 33480, my town shows as Palm Beach instead. How might this be corrected?
2 - The Coastal Star will begin coverage of South Palm Beach October 2009 and I will be delighted to have our town included. Am inviting all I know to join and to be sure the condominium buildings will accept the paper.
3 - Would like to set up a group for our town of South Palm Beach. This may well be totally explained on whatever page I need to fill out when attempting. However, I would like our town to show correctly on our memberships. Any guidance a pro like you can offer will be welcome.
Yes, we would would like to find a place down there. We've looked up here, but it doesn't make nearly as much sense as having a place down there. Please let us know if you hear of any fabulous ocean deals.
I didn't really get a chance to look for a paper copy yet, but I will tomorrow or more likely Friday. It's been a busy week! I love the web site. I read about it on Jan Norris's blog. You know, I don't actually live on the barrier island, so I fibbed. But I have lived within spitting distance of the intracoastal for 20 years. Does that count?
