Copies of the Whitby Gazette are certainly read far and wide and it is a Friday favourite with an ethnic tribe in Yemen in the Middle East.
Colin Clarkson was born and bred in Whitby and he still has family living in the town including three sisters and a brother.
He is a pipeline superintendant currently based in the desert but lives in Southern Ireland with his wife Carol.
Colin has the Gazette sent out to him regularly and the Bedouins - Arabian tribesmen or clans - always have a sneaky read to see what is happening in Whitby.
