I can't believe this is what passes for journalism these days! EVERY island restaurant remains open in the winter except for one, and the vast majority of other businesses maintain their hours. You talked to one visitor who was disappointed? Come in October for the Seafood Blues and Jazz Fest (Leon Russell is!), come for the fishing tournaments, the Island of Lights, etc.! The museum is open year round, as is the aquarium, and visitors will be coming to the beach all winter. Oh, and there are actually a fair number of people who LIVE here and patronize all those OPEN businesses on the island. Next time you want to do a story, trying walking more than five feet from your truck!
