THE FINE PRINT: Published online since 2005 by the City of Treasure Island Public Information Office for exactly 1117 online sunscribers.



The end of an era
Tonight, after 12 years of service (6 years as mayor) Mary Maloof wraps up her government career. This is not a sad time, nor a happy time: the end of an era marks the beginning of a new one. We surely welcome the inevitable seasons of change, but we lament the seasons past that we can never go to again.
In a long career anywhere, you meet people who forget you. You forget people you meet. But sometimes you meet those people you can’t forget. Those are your friends.
Mary Maloof is, and will always be, a friend of Treasure Island.
Tonight, March 17th: Farewell Reception for Mary Maloof, 5pm, TI City Hall, followed by swearing-in ceremony of Mayor Bob Minning and Commissioners Carol Coward and Phil Collins shortly after 6pm. 

We get letters (emails, actually) about all kinds of things. Today, we answer some of your mail.
S.L. of Ontario: Just wanted to let you know that I find the newsletters very entertaining!!! The graphics are wonderful!! The only problem is that when I read them, I wish I was there!!
  Thank you, S.L., for the warm sentiments and all seven   exclamation points.
A.H. of Madeira Beach:
I wish I could write with such a great sense of humor. Where do you get your material?
  We get our material at The Yarn Barn on US 19.
F.L. writes:
Great site except the section where people are slapping one another – I think we have enough violence in the world. It was a real turn off.
  If website cartoon violence causes violence in the   streets, then website comedy should cause comedy in the   streets.
P.H. of Ontario:
Under current weather on your main page, it still shows me stats from Feb 18th.
  We enjoyed the weather so much that day, we decided to   keep it. Actually, our aging weather station software took a   dive. Check out our new weather page here . We now stream   Treasure Island weather data to Weather Underground and   NOAA.
S.C. writes: I also like humor but found a few comments in this months newsletter not in the best of taste. I am sure you know which ones I mean. Try to do better please.
  You’ll be happy to know we no longer shop at The Yarn Barn.
