So Barn Quilts Are What Those Are Re: Calvert’s Barn Quilt Trail, Nov. 21,       Thank you Bay Weekly and Bill Sells for enlightening me about the quilt designs in place throughout Calvert County.

Already Missing Bay Weekly       Over the years, you’ve given us countless bits of news.

Back in 1993 …
      Your paper, which you built from the ground up, is a mainstay for the extended Anne Arundel County community. All of us who live, work or just visit the area turn to your pages for amusing, inspiring, informative articles and a calendar full of fun things to do!

A Bay Weekly Writer Says it Best

She taught me how to be a journalist and a writer, and she taught me how to be fearless when chasing a story. I once got two gubernatorial candidates in the middle of a contentious campaign to sit down to talk to me for an April Fools story about the Bay being put up for sale. And she printed a lede I wrote that almost, but not quite, got me banned from the campus of the U.S. Naval Academy (“If the U.S.
Valuing Bay Weekly Re: Your Say; Just What Goes into James and Poplar Islands?        I just read this week’s [Sept. 19] tome and wanted to share a few thoughts.
