(d) The Anguillian Newspaper:  Bob reported on a concern that the newspaper appeared to have ceased publishing the old photographs of the Society.  It was agreed that he would try to write news stories surrounding a photograph and submit the stories to Nat from time to time in the hope that he would find them worth publishing.
