  1. As a proud resident of St. Joseph Island and President of the Chamber of Commerce, I feel it is incumbent upon me to point out a couple of missteps this piece. First of all, there is no apostrophe in St. Joseph Island. It is a common mistake among non-Islanders, and one I try to rectify whenever possible. Please take note for future articles.
    Secondly, the four corners at the end of the Bridge Road, which is the veritable gateway to the Island, is called Kent’s Corners, named for the family who owned and operated the gas station on the northeast corner for decades.
    Thank you for your attention to these details.
