As an islander myself, a long islander that is, I was wondering why they call this an island. It appears to me to be more of a peninsula. Based on this recent discovery, thanks to a multimillion dollar government study on the classification of islands verses peninsulas in the lower western continental United States, I think it may be prudent to change the name to the Peninsulas vice the Islanders. Anyone living on North Island will still be able to call themselves Islanders. Also, if your home is located on what was once the Spanish Bight, you may call yourself a Bighter. I look forward to your comments.
