Letter: Island moved in a positive direction under Mayor Guenther Letter: Island moved in a positive direction under Mayor Guenther To the editor:

After reading several articles in our local paper and viewing recent City Council meetings, I feel compelled to write to support Mayor Phil Guenther, Councilman Andy Simpson and our island’s population.
I was not born and raised here, but my family had a summer home for years until we were able to move here permanently. Like most people who spend their summers on our lovely island, we loved the feeling we had coming over the bridge and feeling that we were home.

The Gold and Silver Mine- Foreign bank notes remain a relatively inexpensive collectible The Gold and Silver Mine- Foreign bank notes remain a relatively inexpensive collectible Collecting foreign bank notes can be fun and interesting, with the expense being minimal. And with countries going through inflationary periods, obtaining high-denomination notes such as post-World War I Germany notes in the billions of marks or current Zimbabwe (formerly southern Rhodesia) 100 trillion dollar notes can make you feel rich. The best part is that many of these notes can be bought for less than a dollar.

Like stamps, a favorite way to collect foreign bank notes is by topic, such as collecting any picturing birds, fish or animals. And foreign bank notes are renowned for their artwork, which puts our currency to shame.
