This is not the column I planned to write this week. I planned to write about my mantra for 2021, about how I am committed to a year of meaningful work, self-care and community building.

I wanted to tell you all how this year as a newspaper we will focus more on meeting people where they are, growing our reach so our neighbors who need the news we produce get it. We’ll also add new products that make sense — like the beautiful MLK Celebration Committee glossy magazine you find in today’s issue, full of local faces and supported by local business and industry.
