In March 1997 the very first Sandpiper made its debut in Del Mar. Its eight pages expressed many of DM’s current concerns. Published by the Del Mar Community Alliance, the three editors included Gay Hugo-Martinez (Editor), Julie Korsmeyer (Assistant Editor), and Chuck Newton (Copy Editor). You will find below a full list of the 1997 headlines and authors as well as of unsigned contributions. To read all eight pages of the first Sandpiper, please click here.
