HARWICH -- Richard Waystack is a realtor, a former president of the town's chamber of commerce, a volunteer at the community food pantry, and a "washed ashore" -- meaning he wasn't born in this Cape Cod town.He readily adds one more entry to his resume: "I am cheerleader for the community. I make no bones about it," said Waystack, who moved here 18 years ago and now runs his own real estate business, Waystack Realty Inc. "But let me say this to you: I live a half-mile from where I work. I love what I do -- and I get to walk the beach every day. It's just a great place to live."
