Editor:

Congratulations on the Coastal Point’s amazing booklet on the history and culture of Ocean View.

It was very well-researched, well-written and held our interest from page one. It covered an amazing amount of history and had great photographs, as well.

Congratulations on a great job!

Reminder regarding Letters to the Editor

Per our policy, we will not run any letters to the editor the week before the Nov. 8 election. Therefore, our Oct. 28 issue will be the last time readers can promote any candidates for this year’s general election.

Also, and this is important, we expect our letters to be supportive of candidates, as opposed to bringing the conversation into the gutter.
