Note:  there are also still a few copies of the 2016 organizer available so let us know if you want to order some. (Selling the organizer funds us distributing the newspaper for free.)

The 2016 organizer is now available!  click here! to see a list of local stores that carry the organizer, links to mail-order distro websites, and names of the 2016 cover colors.

Note:  2 errors in the spiral 2016 organizer ONLY: (i) on page 3 where there is a 2016/2017 calendar, the headline for 2017 is over the 2016 calendar and the headline for 2016 is over a 2017 calendar.  OOOPS – tell a friend to avoid calendar chaos! (ii)  on June 11 the International day of solidarity with Marius Mason says “Marie”, not Marius.

Also – Oops – the chemical formulas for hormones found in the organizer are apparently incorrect.

.Also, PLEASE bring us your spare rubber bands  – we need them for the mailing!!!!!
