Congratulations to Mary Lockhart on winning the recent by-election and becoming the newest councillor for The Lochs.
Coincidentally, when we were planning this issue a wee while ago, we asked Mary to write an article about the erosion of public services, which she readily agreed to do and is on page 6.
We also have Marion Adamson contributing to this issue with an informative article about the proposed new housing development, and our regular writers, Peter and Lillian, have yet again written fantastic pieces.
We are indebted to all our writers, and our thanks also go to cartoonist Chris Cairns, our advertisers, Printing Services (Scotland) and not forgetting our trusty distributors.
