Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert Yeah Man!!! As I write this, the sun is shining and it is warm – in fact it is almost 90 degrees outside. It is about time. This weekend I will finally be able to go sailing for the first time this season. Speaking of sailing…well at least water….be sure check out […]

Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert After a very slow start to 2016 our advertising content is beginning to pick up. The spring and fall months are always the most active. Recovering from winter always leads to adventures. This month I wrote about one of my favorite escapes…Solomons Island at the southern tip of Calvert County in Maryland. […]

Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert It looks like spring and nice weather is finally here. Now is a great time to take a drive to the mountains. That is just what I wrote about in this month’s Road Trip. I basically retraced my distribution route every month when we deliver the Old Town Crier. There are great […]

Buddha

Instead of the usual Publishers Notes highlighting the contents of this issue, this will be more of a tribute to our recently deceased office kitty…Buddha. I am not really known as a cat lover…I have always preferred dogs, however I got lucky a few times. Over the years I have actually had two cats find […]

Publisher’s Notes

By Bob Tagert Well here it is the end of another year, which also marks the end of the 28th year of publishing the Old Town Crier. It hasn’t always been easy, but it certainly has been interesting. Along the way we have met a lot of people and made some wonderful friends. We have […]

November 2015

By Bob Tagert October certainly was a whirlwind month. The real threat of a hurricane coupled with a huge tropical storm out of the Gulf of Mexico brought misery and pain to all of us with damaged joints. The hurricane went out to sea but the storm remained for three days. Today, the day before […]

Publishers Notes

By Bob Tagert Well, here we go again, another month and another Publisher’s Notes. On second thought, if I think that this is tough, how about those great writers that contribute to this publication. I think that I better rethink my position. We have a fantastic group of talented people on board this crazy ship […]

Publishers Notes

By Bob Tagert Well the kids are back to school and Labor Day is soon approaching. The last vestiges of summer are upon us. Folks will be heading for the beach or joining family and friends for an outdoor barbeque. Where did it all go? Even though it has been enjoyable and even fun at […]
