    Me. Tash, you are doing a great job keeping the newspaper going two days s week and through electronics. I love the new puzzle section we just got and will dole out a puzzle each day. I hope people don’t want subscribers money back. You are doing a wonderful job during this incredible situation. Bless you and all who work with and for you.
