Gossip with a snarky, tart bite…
LET THE HOSTILITIES BEGIN!
Well, the reenactment, anyway. Havenport is all revved up over the 250th anniversary of the Havenport Hostilities. Our proud history and local legends are the name of the game around here these days.

Speaking of local legends, anyone seen the cutie running around town with our favorite single mom and closet witch? Rumor has it he’s the spitting image of one of our very own “Lovers of Havenport.” You know the story—the star-crossed lovers who disappeared in the roaring twenties never to be heard from again, with only an old photograph to remember them by. But my sources say we don’t have the story straight and there’s a beast to go along with his beauty. Now the photo’s gone missing. Some say coincidence, but I’m not convinced. Let’s just hope our friends are successful in Tricking the Beast.

Is our neighborhood Gal Friday finally giving in to temptation? A certain someone’s been hanging around her place quite a lot lately. He’ll claim he’s helping her fix up the place and laying to rest a long-lost scandal while he’s at it, but the twinkle in his eye says he’s looking for something more. I sure hope the untimely arrival of his ex-wife doesn’t throw a wrench in their plans. Our favorite workaholic deserves a little happiness. And who knows, maybe she’ll realize that sometimes our doubts are better left In Days Past.

A little birdie told me the hunky Marine hanging out with one of my colleagues here at the Havenport Herald is fulfilling his late mother’s last request and is itching to leave the second he’s done. But I hear he’s more connected to this town than he knows. In fact, his mother’s something of a local legend. With our intrepid journalist on the case, his wanderlust doesn’t stand a chance. Before you know it, I’ll bet he’s whispering Make Me Stay in her ear. And she’s just the one to make it happen.

Did you hear about the Senate-hopeful’s sister? After her boyfriend, our beloved police chief, asked her to look into some documents he recovered from a murdered ex-con, all hell broke loose. She’s supposed to be authenticating the diary of one of our proud Havenport ancestors, but instead she’s dodging bad guys and solving crimes with eerie Echoes of Betrayal from that very same diary.

I hope you all soak up as much gossip—um, history—as I did. Enjoy the festivities!
