APRIL FOOLS — After 11 years of The Longboat Observer publishing our annual April Fools’ issue, we are sure all — or at least most — of our readers are aware that the stories on pages 1A-4A are fake. In fact, some readers have even told us its their favorite issue of the year, and they can’t wait to see what we’ll do next.
The real stories begin on page 5A and continue throughout the rest of the paper. Happy reading!
