I hope I am joining a growing cacophony of readers who are objecting to your new push to get more people to subscribe to your paper by diminishing the newsstand issue. For many years, I have subscribed to The American, but also purchased the Islander on the newsstand. I enjoy the crossword puzzles, especially. I also look forward to the Ellsworth history years and the “Car Talk” boys, all of which are now found only in the new Extra in the subscriber issue. I have stopped buying the Islander since there is no crossword in it.
