After some serious trials and tribulations with the October issue of the Owl Creek Gazette
-- courtesy of a corrupted file and a major computer collapse --
we were rescued from the brink of publishers' despair by our computer whiz son's retrieval of the October issue's content!
And also worth noting are the gracious folks at Journal Printing in Hillsboro, IL who have been printing the OCG for us for the last seven years ... they have always been more than gracious to work with us on crazy deadline changes ... and this one was a whopper!
