Love, love, love your “XX YEARS Anniversary Issue.”
Living here since 1987 has indeed been a good ride, and the Greenline/Xpress has definitely figured into the mix. It’s so interesting and amusing to read the various takes from an assortment of writers, directors and outlaws. I particularly enjoyed reading Michael Plemmons’ story [“The Day Hazel Fobes Showed Me Up,” Aug. 27, Xpress] regarding Hazel Fobes (“One of the most colorful and diligent figures in the area.”) and her steadfast commitment to local causes.
Thanks for reading through to the end…
