Dear Readers,

This week we are pleased to offer two new features: a community calendar and an easy way to print our stories.

Many of you have asked about submitting your events, and now you can do so by clicking the Calendar link at the top of our website home page. This will allow you to see what is on the calendar and send in your items. 

Because we understand that not everyone can or wants to read news online, we have added a printable link for our stories. Look for the Save as PDF icon at the end of each story, or print the most recent articles all together under the Newsletter link.

We hope these features add to your interest in the Observer.
