Thanks, Janet—that's actually the title for a novel waiting to be written: Where's Fonseca?

Nicole has made quite a name and reputation for herself around Montrose & Sparr Heights. A regular Nancy Drew that one--always on the case. Good journalism makes us all winners! (Is there a prize for cliches too?)

Like some of the others, I wasn't as aware of Monrovia ongoings til Nathan took the Steering Wheel of The Patch and drives the news right home daily. This is a great service, and the award nom is well deserved!
