A note on our coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic: Local events have pretty much shut down during this pandemic and gathering is dangerous. In light of that, Print has reduced its publication cycle to once a month. The most recent edition was published on April 15. The next issue is planned for May 13. 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 weather this pandemic. Please be safe and healthy.
