A remarkably short-lived newspaper, March 1947 to August 1947, also remarkably costly at 25 cents per issue! Articles focus on concerns about traffic jams on Main Road, the dump at Horseneck Beach, and development of “Horseneck Village” by the Horseneck Beach Development Co. Plans for Horseneck included “leveling the dunes to make cottage sites and parking spaces.” Proposed street names included Beach Plum Lane, Cranberry Bog Road, Pine Tree Drive, Elderberry Lane and Dune Road.
