Letters to the Editor: February

Readers reflect on looking through stained glass, local books and Rhode Islanders of the Year.

“Current: Read These Local Books,” December
Riveting! Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer reads like a novel. The level of detail and the quality of the reporting in this book is amazing. She paints a compelling picture of a dark time in New Bedford’s history and tells the story expertly through the suffering of family members and the dedication and frustration of investigators.

“Rhode Islanders of the Year,” December
We were in Sweet Althea’s this morning and a woman came up to us and said, “I recognize you from the magazine. Such a lovely article.” Goosebumps!

This is amazing! Thank you so much Grace Kelly and everyone at Rhode Island Monthly for the wonderful article and for coming to our shop and seeing some of the stained glass process firsthand!

Why? Is it the asinine taxes? The horrible months from December to April? Tell us Jay! Why?????

Correction: In a December blog about the Courtland Club, we referenced a colada inspired by the pina colada at the Ocean Mist, made with an Island Oasis Machine. The Ocean Mist uses Vitamix blenders, not Island Oasis machines.
