My apologies for being late posting this week’s column. I had surgery Monday, the day I normally post, and will be moving slowly for a while. Will shortly be posting this week’s blog, the second part of the Christmas Mystery Visitor – with intriguing details about my mother that readers/genealogists unearthed and that I never suspected. I hope you enjoy it.
If you have friends or relatives who’d be interesting in getting my columns by blog, I’d be grateful if you asked them to click on http://www.woodwardblog.com and then on subscribe. As always, it’s free and they’ll get the columns by e-mail every other Monday. The blog is especially handy for people who live outside The Statesman’s circulation area, as evidenced by its subscribers in states as distant as Alaska and Florida.
As you know, recent years have been hard on the newspaper industry. The more subscribers I have, the better the chances would be of getting a sponsor for the blog and continuing it in the event The Statesman should be forced to cut costs and discontinue my column. I’m not saying that will happen, have heard absolutely no indication that it it will and hope it doesn’t, but as mentioned, these are uncertain times in this business. I love writing the columns and hope to do so for a long time, both for the Statesman and for those of you who subscribe here. Thanks for reading,
