Our Viewpoint: Vacation time

Summer has come for us at the Phoenix, as it has for all of us, just in the nick of time. We are all living through a difficult time, and yet we are also called to enjoy life and take care of ourselves.

It’s for that reason, and because with our small staff it is difficult to take vacations, we are taking a brief summer break around the Fourth of July holiday. We will not publish on July 6 and will return with our edition of July 13. 

This is also, as always, a great time to thank our readers and advertisers for their loyal support as we build, week by week, this independent newspaper. We are pleased that in the year since our last July vacation, we were awarded First Place in General Excellence in our category by the Maine Press Association.

We are grateful for that recognition, but more importantly, for your support. We wish all our readers, advertisers, and friends a safe and joyful holiday.
