A note on our coverage during this very weird phase of the Covid-19 pandemic: Print has made it through the pandemic, which we did not know that we would be able to do, but we are seeking new income streams for our family, because this is not making enough money for us to live on. Therefore, as we odd job our way out of this mess Print is not rushing back to publish more frequently, which means we are staying monthly for the time being. The most recent edition was published on August 18. The next issue is planned for September 15. If that changes, we will let you know in this space here and on our Facebook page. Thanks for sticking with us. Our plan is to keep slowly publishing as we emerge from this pandemic, if we ever do. Please be safe and healthy.
