Editor's Note: The news continues at the Beacon
Last updated 4/24/2020 at 4:10pm
We know you are missing the weekly Edmonds Beacon, and we miss bringing it you. As we have noted before, the Beacon is temporarily publishing its paper edition on the first and third Thursdays of the month due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But we want to remind you that everyone at the Beacon continues to work every day as an essential business, as per Gov. Jay Inslee's orders.
What does this mean for readers?
While the next issue of the Beacon won't be published until May 7, we continue to provide fresh news every day on our website and through our social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
We've revamped our homepage, so each week you'll see stories that are new. For example, the page now reads "Week of April 23, 2020," as the paper would have normally arrived on streets and doorsteps April 23.
Take a look, and you'll see that new stories this week include ones on Earth Day, a crash at Five Corners, information on a fun, new City-sponsored contest, as well as an exclusive account on how the pandemic is crippling commercial flights out of Paine Field.
Plus, we are excited to introduce a new feature called "Class of 2020: Senior Focus," where we are spotlighting Edmonds-Woodway students impacted by the pandemic.
And we continue to post daily information from the Snohomish Health District on coronavirus numbers related to Edmonds.
And we'll be posting a new Police Beat soon.
There's a lot going on at the Beacon, and we're here 24/7 to provide news that affects your life.
