Publisher's Message - With the return of the Winter season, the number of articles and ads we're receiving has tripled. This has made recent issues of the Baja Western Onion much longer and time-consuming to read. Beginning this week, we're going to start publishing three issues of the Baja Western Onion each week. Our new publishing schedule will now be every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Hopefully this will result in shorter issues, making it easier for you to read (and quicker for us to prepare and send :). This will also improve the visibility of your articles and ads. We hope you'll like the shorter format. As always, thank you so much to all of our more than 3,200 subscribers for your continued support of the Baja Western Onion. We truly appreciate it. - The Baja Western Onion
