Screwed up schedules, changes coming…
Due to circumstances beyond our control, there will be some changes, and mixed-up publication schedules coming.
First, our annual “2010 Babies in Review” issue, where we feature pictures and information on Wayne County babies born during 2010, will appear in our December 26th and January 2rd issues. Now, for the tricky part. Christmas and New Year’s fall on Saturdays this year, so we have to print and deliver the paper on the Friday before the holidays. Hopefully the post office will still deliver the mailed copies on the Monday after the holidays, but with their schedule and past record it is anybody’s guess. All baby pictures and information for the Babies in Review MUST be submitted no later than December 20th.
Over the next several weeks, regular features will be jumbled about a bit while the dust is settling. The Christmas and New Year’s Eve editions will bump some of the regular games, puzzles and columns to make way for the Babies/Holiday thing. Right after the holidays, it will be back to normal.
Okay, if we we’re not under enough pressure, a new Times website is being introduced on January 1st that will make surfing our site even easier, especially for paid subscribers who have complete access to our digital editions.
Paid subscribers can access the full weekend editions on Saturday mornings and the online-only (all-different) Thursday editions after 6 a.m. on Thursdays. Remember, this full access is available only to paid subscribers. There will be some new online-only services coming this year that will save paid subscribers $$ with special deals!
If you are already a paid subscriber and you are not taking advantage of the online services and extra edition of the Times, go to waynetimes.com now and register up, or call us at (315) 986-4300 and we will help you along.
On that same note, this year we will be offering apps access to the Times full editions for smart phone and iPad/smart pads users.
We need help. As our coverage is growing, we need writers to cover town and village board meetings. If you feel you can be unbiased in reporting meetings, please call Patti at (315) 986-4300. There are several paid/town and village positions open.
Now, throw into the mix the next scheduled cancer surgery and treatments upcoming for yours truly and there is a bit of pressure on the family. I will be going in for the next process in battling bladder cancer in the next two weeks. Then, a series of vaccine insertions will follow, pretty much making me uncomfortable for the next several months. I will, however, keep at the helm of the ship and continue writing.
Thanks to the scores of cards, wishes and casseroles, along with stories from other bladder cancer survivors. I will keep you posted on my progress along the way. Thanks again.
