To the editor:

I am writing to offer my opinion regarding real estate advertising in The Working Waterfront/Inter-Island News. I have been a member of the Institute for years and have enjoyed, tremendously, your publications. However, it is distressing to me to see you write about the diminishing facilities and abilities of Maine’s fishing endeavor because the coastal properties are being devoured by a population with seemingly endless resources of capital. Your advertising of some of these properties seems woefully at odds with your mission. I for one would be glad to pay for your now free paper. Possibly that is part of a solution to revenue needs.
