That’s where the technology goblins let us down. You’re supposed to be able to tap or click on an element, such as a puzzle, to enlarge or print it. For some reason, that functionality was broken Monday. Without an easy way to print, it was very difficult to do the crossword puzzle. I apologize for this problem, which we traced to a glitch at our software vendor. I’m told the issue was resolved Tuesday, so I am hopeful you’ll be able to work the puzzles next Monday without having to resort to extreme measures.
Read us in the afternoon
Although we were hoping for a slower news day on Sunday, the opposite was true on Monday, when we published our first Afternoon Briefing newsletter. Web Editor Amy Libby wanted a lot of fresh news that would tempt our initial batch of subscribers to open an unfamiliar email, read the newsletter, and tell others to subscribe.
She led with the news that the Eatery at the Grant House had closed permanently and also was able to offer three other local stories that broke since Morning Briefing, including the news obituary of Vancouver businessman Arch Miller, a former First Citizen honoree. From the region, we had the latest about tension at the state capital as the 2021 Legislature opened. In all the first newsletter contained eight fresh stories, which I thought made for a robust read.
Afternoon Briefing and our other newsletters are free to anyone who wishes to receive them. Visit columbian.com/newsletters to subscribe. Each item in the newsletter has a link to the full story on our website; you have to be a subscriber to read all of the stories in their entirety.
There’s a lot going on in this world, and we are doing our best to provide you with the news in every way and throughout every day.
