Although I live off-Island I read the Vineyard Gazette every week and I love. the paper. Sadly this week we have two markers in the sand that have brought me sadness. Arnie Reisman died this week and this coincided with the end of the radio program Says You after 25 years. Mr. Reisman, and his wife Paula Lyons simply cannot be replaced. And then we have news editor Noah Asimov who is departing as well. That is all a huge loss for such a small staff and I and many other devoted readers will miss them terribly. Godspeed to you all.
