From the Watershed Chronicle —
After doing a little digging, I’ve uncovered an interesting tidbit of information about the soon-to-be new newspaper here in Cecil County, The Cecil Guardian. The editor of this new self-billed “community newspaper that listens to your needs” will be none other than Chesapeake Bay boating icon Ira Black. (Full disclosure: Ira gave me my first job in Publishing at The Mariner way back in 1997.) Ira’s brand of wry, off-beat humor and straight shooting for The Mariner, then later with his self-titled Ira Black’s Nor’easter Magazine, helped make him one of the most recognizable personalities in the Chesapeake Bay boating scene over the past twenty years.
