Pretty slick... are you guys really going to have enough content to fill 16 pages every other week?

I think we’re looking at monthly, not bi-weekly.

I thought we were hoping to go to weekly  ;D  We may cut back to 12 pages if we can't find the content at the beginning.

Braddog, I totally dig the layout.   Are we really gonna have crossword puzzles?  I think that's a great idea.  I like crosswords...

Thanks, guys!  Yeah, we're going to have a crossword puzzle; there are places that give them out for free, so it'd be stupid not to have one.

I know it's prolly too late to suggest a name but I have to just the same.

Being from the SF bay area, when I moved here in '97 I was kinda surprised at how many businesses embraced the "Queen City" name. So I would suggest:

Queen City Crier

Historical tinge, sense of urgency . . whatever, just had to throw it out there.

This is Manchester, not Provincetown.  ;D  But seriously, it's a good suggestion.  I really like the Manchester Free Press, though, and it's getting to the point where it's too late for a name change anyway.

heh . . yeah, like I said, just had to throw it out there.

On a visit to P-town I saw John Waters sitting on a bench chillin'. A unique place to be sure.

When you guys get this thing up and going, you should post PDF's of the paper for those of us not yet in the free state

That's the plan, Matthew :)  We'll have a fully-functional website, with PDFs, individual stories, and a number of other goodies!

It might be too much work depending on whether someone likes them enough to volunteer, but altering a CW to be more libertarian-themed would be cool, or to even have it tied to recent events in the paper itself, so you're actually encouraged to read the paper. Yeah, it's probably too much work.  :blush:

We’ll have both the individual articles on the website, as normal HTML pages, and PDFs of the paper version, too.

There’s plenty of software out there to generate crossword puzzles.

There are also services that create crosswords for newspaper. As I recall, they're rather inexpensive.

I'll see what I can do about creating a liberty-oriented crossword...
