    Good grief! More than 170 readers went to a story published more than a year ago – why? How about…Burlington Gazette publishes 4 articles on Solid Gold in one week – why?

    Ms Skinner appears to have missed her morning paper – the Gazette, in a follow up article, explained why the traffic (the total was 348 people)read the piece. Readers expected to get the latest news from the Gazette – and we reported.

    Good grief. I have to wonder if there would have been such a police presence for a private citizens break in.
