I just received and read with pleasure the 2013 Travel Issue. The magazine gets better and better.

Two “problems” however; the great map was tricky to remove and some of it adhered to the magazine, leaving a hole in the map. Maybe in the future there’s a less tenacious adherent?

Also, enjoyed a lot the six kayakers article, but searched high and low for the identities of the five who traveled with the author.

Thank you so much for the beautiful article on Elmira downtown in the 2013 Travel Issue.

There is one problem, however. There is an error in the attribution. I responded that this was a collaborative effort – Jennifer Herrick, Executive Director and Marcia Tinker, Marketing Assistant. Only my name was mentioned and Jennifer did not get credit at all.

Marcia Tinker, Elmira Downtown Development

Thank you to Jennifer Herrick as well!

Thank you very much for 2013 Travel Issue. It really is an outstanding issue. I don’t envy you your task of maintaining that kind of quality on a consistent basis. I remember when I was the assistant sports editor for the Alfred University school paper. I found it a challenge back then to keep coming up with something every two weeks. I gave the second copy to my brother-in-law who is 89, because he visits the Finger Lakes wineries a lot.

Thanks again, Stan Ren
