To our Readers, Members, and Advertisers

For 19 years, has made providing up-to-date news about our community its mission. We are a husband-and-wife team, and our priorities changed with Ralph’s recent surgery. We are now focused on the recovery process. During this break from day-to-day reporting, we ask members to continue to explore issues through the forums, post classified ads and use the extensive story archives. We will not be accepting new advertising or charging our current advertisers. We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.
