We hope everyone is safe and dry. There are a lot of good people doing great things in a time of need. We have most of the May issue dropped and will get to Newark and Harrison in Batesville as soon as we can get there. The digital issue is also online on our THIS MONTH'S ISSUE page. Enjoy, stay safe, and we thank you all for a great year.
