How are we doing?

The All Point Bulletin is published and distributed on the last Friday of each month (except for November and December). It is mailed to each home on the Point that receives mail service from the U.S. Postal Service and is placed in drop-off locations in Point Roberts and Tsawwassen (where it is also sent to homes and businesses).

Can you please take a moment to fill out a very short survey about our delivery to your home? It should take well under a minute to complete. Thank you.

  1. Hi Simon,
    “Local reporting is largely limited to the police blotter.” The average APB contains between 22,000 – 24,000 words. The sheriff’s reports (which are supplied by the WCSO) typically runs about 125 words. The latest issue had 12 stories including summer road work, school budget cutbacks, local groups interacting with county officials, local open political offices, new businesses, how to get rid of toxic wastes and more. Plus, there were columns about emergency preparedness, gardening, new offerings at the library, upcoming meetings and events, tide tables and, again, more. The classifieds are typeset and laid into print like the rest of the paper. If this is what you consider fluff, your comments would be more helpful if you were to actually suggest what content you would like to see that would have real impact on the community.

  2. Hi,
    Frankly speaking, your publication needs a lot to be desired and be successful.
    Local reporting is largely limited to the police blotter. And the rest are mostly local
    fluff of no real impact on the community.
    And the worst offense is the classified section, which you scanned from print without
    putting the images into zoomable format like pdf at least.
    I understand the shortage of help and economy of scale issues that can affect the
    quality and quantity of content. Just trying to help.
