Why dismiss Katie?


To the Editor:

I am very disappointed  in your decision to terminate Katie Carroll (Chilmark News columnist).

I, as well as many other folks I know, never bothered to read that column until Katie started writing it. She did a great job keeping up with about everything and everybody in Chilmark. including harbor activities, Coast Guard, birthdays, sickness, social events, and just about everything.

I know most of the off-Island boaters who visit Menemsha read that column every week. They like to know what happens around Menemsha, too.

So what’s up with this? You owe us an explanation, to be sure.

Glad we still have Jane Slater writing about Chilmark for the Vineyard Gazette. She does a great job also.
