We love to cover your events, however, producing these pages is expensive and time consuming. Each edition of the News requires two weeks or more labor to put together. See Event Insert for more information.

anvilfire removes translation system from News page. In Volume 17 we experimented with something new, Systran's on-line translation service. The system may work for certain types of web sites but created a huge amount of overhead and work for us. On a page that has links to hundreds of other pages it was impossible to make the system work properly.

Future editions may be translated and static pre-translated copies of each page maintained. If our translation service is useful to you we would like to hear about it.
