I'm sure some readers will welcome back the print edition if for no other reason than as a counterwight to the Daily Compost.

As for me, I have always preferred the digital version. I hope you closely track the number of printed papers that are not picked up to mitigate waste.

Local journalism does need to switch from an advertising based revenue stream to other models. This has been a topic of much conversation on various NPR podcasts, with various financial models being tried in different parts of the country to find a combination that works for them.

I am proud to support the Almanac financially and hope that others will do so in droves. Long live local journalism!

What a waste of paper. No one reads this failing publication. At least people will have kindling to use for fires.

The Almanac has been such an important part of our mid-peninsula community, keeping us all better informed on the local issues that are so very important to all of us. Democracy only works when a community can make informed decisions based upon all of the relevant facts impacting our community and our quality of life. We are all very fortunate to have resumption of the print edition. I would encourage all of us to support this critical resource with our continued support through our subscriptions. Thank you.

We are heartened to hear that the print edition is returning. Thank you.
Journalism is important and worthy of support, and local community information is especially appreciated. Whatever the format - digital, print, broadcast ... - it is of great value. We are fortunate, indeed, to have these options available to us.
Keep up the good work!

Hello, is it possible to not get the printed version? Digital is enough for many people. No need to waste resources for those who don't want the hard copy. I didn't see an option in my profile.
