Special edition coming Sunday

We normally don’t publish a newspaper on Sunday, but this weekend is an exception.

Figuring that nothing is more important than your right to vote, we’re going to help you make a well-informed decision by publishing a free special issue on Sunday about the Nov. 7 election.

Short of driving you to the polls ourselves, we hope this “news you can use” edition will be a useful resource for the election.

It is chock full of information, including candidate profiles, analysis, and explanations of the issues that matter to you. We also have included a list of polling places, links to election-related Web sites, and a story on the county’s new electronic voting machines.

We hope you’ll treat this edition like my favorite cookbook: make notes in the margin, spill coffee on it, give it that “used” look. My son will no doubt try to draw mustaches on the photos of the candidates.

How do you get a copy of our free Sunday edition?

If you’re a subscriber, you can get this free issue in one of two ways: at one of the 75 places where we’re providing free copies in western Nevada County – or on the Internet. (Please note: this Sunday edition will not be delivered to your home; I, for one, think our delivery crew deserves at least one day off.)

On the Internet, you can read a copy electronically by logging onto our “e-Edition” at http://www.theunion.com/eedition and follow the instructions. Sign up for the e-Edition before Sunday and you’ll be eligible to win a free iPod Nano. Take the e-Edition for a test drive now!

Reading news on your PC is an easy, environmentally friendly way to stay informed. “No recycling required,” as our e-Edition points out. Plus, you don’t have to leave home. (My column on Saturday’s opinion page will explain how the Web is the future of newspapers – and a lot of other printed material.)

The other way to get a copy of Sunday’s election issue is to visit one of the dozens of places where we’re handing them out. This includes almost every place you can think of: grocery stores, coffee shops, book stores, retirement homes – and The Union’s office at 464 Sutton Way in Grass Valley. (See the complete list at right).

If you’re not a subscriber, pick up a copy at one of these places, or subscribe to the e-Edition for a small fee. Better yet, we hope you’ll become a regular newspaper subscriber.

Depending on how it goes, we’re thinking of publishing a free Sunday edition of The Union starting next year.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to vote.
