We would like it to be known that all the bad publicity about locals not liking tourists and how we don't like sharing our Island and that we are misfits and out of hand and don't care about you--well you need to know that it's not true. Yes we Islanders are proud and we know we have gifts. And we know we live in a special place. But we do not think we are better. We are not self righteous or arrogant. Each year we look forward to seeing people flock to Catalina for vacations, comfort, a warm blanket, a fresh breath. We do care and want you to have a good time. We are very blessed and want you to be as well. We could care less what some misinformed journalists and outsiders call us or think about US. We know who we are and what our calling is. Please pay no heed to the ignorant and misin- formed people who are jealous of our insight. Relax, have a great time and if you have any doubts, ask a local for advice and I'll bet you get steered in the right direction. Islander for 40 years and I speak for many.
