The print room’s new little helper is having some time in the naughty corner after this week’s shenanigans.

There has been a bit of a mix-up at the printer this week and we have ended up with two page fourteens by mistake. Nothing against that page but naturally we would prefer at least one page eleven.

Page eleven this week was a good one. It had a couple of cartoons that were good for a chuckle. There was nice contributions form our letter writers too. We love our letter writers and are very sorry that some went missing this week. You will be able to find Michael Balson, Andrew Hall, Dr Sonia Laverty and Kate Larkins and Bruce Chester’s letters here in Echonetdaily in the Letters section.

The other really important content that was lost from the printed paper was of course some of our valued advertisers. We’re really sorry guys and will make it up to you. Promise. The Rails had their gigs for the next week listed and Byron MediSpa, Summerland Garden Centre and Byron Medicine Wheel all have great offers on now so check them out.

For the Echo completionists who don’t feel whole until they’ve gone cover to cover (we know you’re out there), here is page eleven in its intended form.



Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
