Summer Slowdown

BY Father Owen Kearns, LC

June 21 is the first day of summer, and the inevitable slowing down has begun. School has ended in most places. Families have fewer commitments, vacation schedules are beginning, and the Register is slowing down, too.

Next week, the Register will come as usual, but we’re planning ways to make it count for more, because its issue dates will stretch over two weeks instead of one.

For subscribers, this is good news and bad news. The good news: Your subscription will last longer, because we will deliver the same number of issues over a longer period of time now. The bad news is somewhat mitigated: Yes, we will be biweekly in our print edition, but our new website means you can go online to get a daily, not just weekly, dose of the Register.

We’ll see you there! God bless.
