I just wanted to express my sorrow for the end of your great newspaper. I’ve enjoyed reading all about local news over the years and hate to see the end of such a great Alameda institution.

I also want to express my appreciation for printing my monthly column on climate protection. My best to all of you!

My family no longer resides in Alameda, but we did live there for 40 years, starting in 1982.

Both of our daughters were born at the Alameda Hospital and attended St. Joseph. The Alameda Sun was always an important part of our week. It kept us aware of the many wonderful things that took place on the Island.

I was the Chair and Board Member of the Alameda Recreation and Parks Commission for eight years and a Board Member on the Alameda Golf Commission for two years. I was also the Chair of the Alameda Friends of the Parks Foundation for eight years. I loved every minute of it!

The Alameda Sun was very kind to our Foundation and to the press releases we offered regarding park activities and developments.

Thank you for being an important part of Alameda. You made our town better. Good luck to you and to your staff.

Best Regards,

— William Delaney

I’m truly sorry to hear that the Sun is ceasing operations. I know the media business is brutal, and exhausting, and I just want to make sure you and your staff know that you have provided an important and valuable service to the city, and the paper will be missed. Take care,
