New Decade, New Paper
From the start, the reborn TT reflected Costa Rica’s expanding panorama. Columns such as “Women’s Lib and You” and “Women Here and Now” replaced the “Lady Talk” of the ‘50s; a series on investments by banker and entrepreneur Jack Harris warned newcomers to proceed with caution and beware of con men – advice that would continue to hold true 30 years later; “Why We Did It” interviewed foreign retirees who had settled here, while Edwin Retana’s “Understanding the Aduana” tried to help them cope; Yehudi Monestel’s “Costa Rica: Odds & Ends” featured fascinating tidbits about Tico culture, geography, nature and lore; “What Is It?” introduced Costa Rica’s fruits and vegetables; and articles on pollution and endangered wildlife marked a growing concern over environmental issues.
