You’ll notice this week’s Beacon is a bit heavier than normal for summer. The big news this week is your chance to see a real, live new-and-improved Gasparilla Gazette!
If you haven’t had the chance to pick one up, or are up north right now, this is your sneak peek into the fabulous world we are opening up in the publication that has been an island mainstay for decades.Some people have called our office and asked, “If I’m getting the Beacon already, am I missing something by not getting the Gazette?”
That answer is a resounding “Yes. You are.”
Shy of a few items such as obituaries, letters to the editor and popular events that are upcoming, the content in each newspaper will be unique. You will most definitely be missing pertinent island news if you don’t pick up the new Gasparilla Gazette.
But, many people haven’t seen the new Gazette yet. In light of that fact, we will be inserting a recent publication in this Boca Beacon newspaper for our mailing subscribers’ enjoyment. If you are here on the island, you can pick up a new Gazette at any of the old locations, as well as in our office.
We will be increasing the cover price to 50 cents in the near future, but if you call our office at 964-2995 prior to August 31 you will get the old subscription price. We look forward to serving you in even more ways with these new publications, and thank you for being loyal readers.
