Source Has Information and Editorials

Dear Source:
I must confess that over the past few years that I've written letters to this online newspaper I've never looked at the Editorial column or the Op-Ed contributions.
As a subscriber to Earthlink, the first thing I see when I click onto St. Thomas Source from my Earthlink home page is an article about tourism dating back to 2003. No problem, I just scroll down and get all the local news. It took me a while to get to the Op-ed column and a longer time to get to the Editorial page. They were both right there, right underneath my nose and just a click away.
I admit to being a complete Internet dummy these days! But I'm also angry with myself that although I both buy and peruse both the Daily News and The Avis every day, I simply screwed up and failed to realize that the St. Thomas Source is a real newspaper with a real Editorial column and a real Op-Ed section. DUH?
If Ms. Pennington will allow me to address this issue, I simply ask that if any of you online readers have had the same problems as I have had, you not only get the local news but then click onto the Op-Ed and Editorial columns. And read the Avis, too!
Many thanks to both St Thomas Source and The Avis for not being subservient to any higher entity but publishing not only what's important but editorializing what's both right and debatable. Kudos!
I have been personae non grata with The Daily News for close to a year now but that's another story!
