Fiber optic options

To the Editor:

I am an infrequent visitor to your beautiful island. I was told today that a task force has been active in exploring the potential for fiber optic. I obtained online a copy of a report issued earlier this year. I wish to inform the task force that my area of Vermont (just west of Hanover, N.H., an area largely known as the Vermont side of the Upper Valley) has a community-based fiber optic company, ECFiber, which has been in operation for four or five years and is growing monthly to cover some 22 towns.  

ECFiber can be easily found by a Google search. It can share with Block Island people its experience in organization, funding, installation, pricing and service delivery.

Heartfelt thanks

To the Editor:

I would like to thank Dr. Abeel Mangi and his staff at Yale-New Haven Hospital; Raquel Corona, Linda Closter, Dr. Mark Clark, and the staff at the Block Island Medical Center, and everyone else for their prayers, thoughts, and get well wishes during my recent illness.

Your friend,
