April issue updateTo our readers and advertisers: We've decided not to publish an April issue. This will be the first time in our 16-year history that we've missed an issue. But we know that many events we would have been spotlighting have been canceled, many of our advertisers are hurting, and some outlets that carry our newspaper (the Cortez Rec Center, for example) will be closed. It just makes sense not to print a paper for this coming month. We'll continue to offer updates online. And of course you have The Journal for continuing news coverage in the local area. Let's hope that by May things will be looking better. Stay healthy, everyone!
