The San Mateo County Times’ John Horgan reports that Foster City’s weekly newspaper, The Islander, has a new owner, who continues to cover all things related to that bayside community in a fresh format. But one of the paper’s quirkiest features, an advice column by a cat named Cleo, no longer appears in The Islander.
“Along with a folksy, homespun weekly piece by Sam Felser on any subject that intrigued him, Cleo’s helpful hints from a friendly feline perspective became a regular, weird staple of the publication through the decades,” Horgan writes.
Feiser, who died a year ago, started the paper 40 years ago. Felser’s daughter, Margorie, sold the paper earlier this year. The new publisher is Mark Watson, an attorney.
