This magazine has been a big part of my life for more than a decade.
Long before I took over as Editor and Publisher, I was writing articles and posting everything for the magazine.
Four times a year, my life has been completely overtaken by the need to
produce another issue. After our founder Nora passed away, everything got more
difficult and more expensive, but I persisted through my personal trials and
tribulations. Last issue, I mentioned my mother's most
recent fall in the Editor's Notes. Just before my birthday in June, she was
admitted to Hospice Care and I finally realized it was time to make some
very difficult decisions.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that this
will be the next to the
last issue for the magazine. I will continue to support it as long as
possible, in order to maintain an archive, but there will be no new content after
October 2012. I want to thank our loyal volunteer staff, sponsors and
readers for all of their support over the years.
