LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Long-time resident praises Robert Johnson

To the Editor:
Having been a resident for 40 years, not nearly as long as those before me who have enjoyed the charm and heritage of our island, it is so assuring to know that there are other residents like me who support the effort to preserve what it was that attracted us here in the first place.
One of us, a multi-generational resident, is Robert Johnson. I have known him and his family for close to the 40 years I have been here. The Johnsons are a major part of the glue that has kept us bonded to our heritage, and been willing to give us the benefit of his life and vast knowledge. While not bashful and retiring, Robert’s opinions are valuable and are not designed to please everyone.
Robert, you are a treasure. Thanks for being involved.
