Fall Staff Reorganization

As many of you know, the Delta News Web staff are adjusting to large corporate restructuring.  Several members have been transferred to Sweden, one to Anchorage, etc.  Please bear with our sporadic updates, things will return to normal soon!

The classified ads managed to slip through for several days.  They are back, our apologies to all who's ads lost eyeball time.

Thanks to all of you submitting pictures and calendar events.  Fall is such a wonderful time of year!
