To our readers

The rising cost of newsprint and other expenses associated with the newspaper industry have forced us to make changes to the publication schedule of the Alameda Journal. Oct. 21 will be the final edition of the Tuesday Alameda Journal. We will continue to publish the Journal every Friday, however, and many of the news features and columnists previously found in the Tuesday Journal will appear in the Friday Journal instead.

We appreciate your understanding and continued readership. Any questions can be addressed to Editor Connie Rux at 748-1658 or Executive Editor Kevin Keane at 925-977-8046.
