Dear folks: We are admittedly late with this issue. I, Clara, had devoted most of my time to raising money so that we would not be classified as a private foundation, for that would be a very bad outcome for us. The good news is that we did succeed in passing the test for public support.

However, I have learned that we must pass this test each and every year, so please do not stop supporting us, for we will need your ongoing support so that we may continue to publish year after year. We do have someone who is trying to get some grants for us, but those are always iffy. Our best bet is to continue getting your support. You will note that we now have “memberships,” and these are for your magazine. We also now have what is called Sponsors, and we will discuss this individually with those who write to us.

This has been a year of ups and downs. One of my favorite people, Kay Ryder, is no longer able to continue her work with us because she has been quite ill.

There is still much work to be done to finish the year financially.

Beginning with this new issue, we will now be published by The World Newspaper in Coos Bay. It will seem different to you, but we will be able to be more on time with our issues once we have a pattern established with them, and I think you will be pleased with the result.

It's a new year, new things to try and new vistas. Happy New Year, everyone!
