Keeping you unaware

To the Editor:

The editors and publishers of the Vineyard Gazette and The Martha’s Vineyard Times are sure to let us all know of the annual New England Press Association awards for excellence in journalism won in various categories, save one that is.

That is an omitted award in which both public prints would easily win first prize. To wit: that of Island news ignored, be it in obituaries, local news or in cutting edge historical research, thus helping to keep their readers ignorant and unaware.
