Mr. Allen, it appears you have lost the essence of Yankee. You must not be a true New Englander, for I believe what you have done to Yankee Magazine is terrible. It would have been kinder to lay Yankee to rest with a proper eulogy and rename your new publication The Interloper. Your “new” approach is akin to what invasive plant species are doing to the beautiful, diverse landscapes of New England.

It’s a Keeper
Instead of going out to dinner last night, we stayed home and “ate crow.” We had lambasted you for the new look practically before reading the January/February issue, and now the March/April issue has caused us to beg your forgiveness. Our previous note to you stated that the new look caused the magazine to no longer be a “keeper.” But we’re starting a new stack of Yankee keepers behind the smaller version. We congratulate you — go Yankee! Go Red Sox!

In the January/February issue, we noted that Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont was the site of the first chairlift in the East. Other sources indicate that the first lift was at Belknap Recreation Area (now Gunstock Mountain Resort) in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Also in the January/February issue, we failed to credit the maker of the hooked rug on page 61. It was Judy Vantine.
