December 1999 Table
Among the inevitable facts of life are death, taxes and rate increases. The increase
in postal rates for both Canada and the US force us to increase our subscription
price for the first time since 1993. Our new rates appear on the inside back cover.
We're sorry, but...
Good news for our advertisers, however: no increase in ad rates because we continue
to be well supported by the business community of Abaco that realises the Journal
reaches around the world. While we advertise Abaco both in print and on the Internet
, new people will be attracted to our unique island and lifestyle.
Our agenda is to keep property owners, winter residents, frequent renters and all
friends of Abaco in touch with what is happening on the island. In addition, we include
national news that may be of importance to our readers. We receive most of our support from Treasure Cay property owners but look forward to more interest from those on
We have kept our increases to a minimum. Except for the cover price. Those copies
left over from our commitments are put on sale in select locations. The October issue
disappeared off the shelves in three days. We take this opportunity to raise our
cover price to $1 - still a bargain to our way of thinking. We heard that a copy of the October
Floyd edition was re-sold for $20! Hmmm...
There are a few overrun copies of the sell-out Floyd October edition. New subscribers
can receive that edition by noting the fact on their subscription form.
We have also reserved a few copies of the October Floyd edition for Patrick J Bethel
to auction off some time in the future on behalf of Abaco charities. He'll probably
get bids of $100!
