We agree, it costs too much
Several friends including members of the Board of Directors mentioned to your Ol' Editor at Little Rock that they enjoy the Checkerboard "but it costs too much."
Agreed! We realize costs for web-printing, newsprint, ink, and especially postage have skyrocketed.
Your editorial staff donates its time and labor to the Checkerboard which is a "labor of love."
In order to cut down on costs, there will be only four issues in 2007 and the annual roster edition will be delayed to another year. It is by far the most expensive issue of them all.
