Welcome to the new Largo Times

By CARRIE WEIMAR, Largo Times Editor
Published September 30, 2007


Hello, Largo!

Welcome to your new section. Now we want to hear from you:

About the friends and neighbors who have fascinating stories to tell.

About the places you love to visit and the hometown secrets no one else knows about.

And, of course, the news that makes Largo a diverse and interesting place to live.

Our team of reporters and photographers is ready to deliver the community-based news in our twice-weekly section on a level you haven't seen before.

But we need your help to capture the true spirit that makes Largo unique.

So don't hesitate to call or e-mail if you know a local waitress who still loves coming to work after 30 years on the job. Or if you know who grows the prettiest orchids in town. Or if you have a neighbor who deserves recognition.

We're here for you. And we can't wait to hear from you.

Largo Times editor Carrie Weimar can be reached at 727 445-4151 or
