New Format For The Baja Western Onion - As we begin our eighth year of publication, we want to make sure the Baja Western Onion is as easy to use as possible. Based on feedback we've received, we're going to a new design intended to reduce or eliminate side-to-side scrolling starting with this issue.

We're also considering other format changes to increase readability. Because we can't test the Baja Western Onion on all Email readers, please give us your valuable feedback and let us know what you like and dislike, and advise us of any problems encountered. You can send your feedback to us at Moderator [- at -] BajaWesternOnion.com.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support of the Baja Western Onion. - Alan and Debra, Moderator [- at -] BajaWesternOnion.com - The Baja Western Onion
