We hope they had a great time here. Surfside residents Wendy Abarca, Britton Jacob-Schram and Capt. Tom Haydu have developed a new local newspaper called The Beach Report, featuring regional news and classified ads. Among them, they have experience in journalism, marketing and graphic design. The publication will be available in print and online. They have an advertising deadline for the first week of August and ask that interested advertisers make their submissions by then.
Many thanks to Marie Yates for covering for me while I was out of the country last month. She always does a great job, and her willingness to pitch in is much appreciated.
