Hey everyone,

So this newsletter-hard-copy-mailing-thing is bugging the crap out of
me...and it needs to be settled somehow.  Here's what I was able to find out
about the two of the six remaining hard-copy requestors:

1) Dr. Martin H Ahlene of 523 Pine St, Kingman, AZ "died peacefully after a
long illness on Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, at the age of 83...His life-long
interests were astronomy, history and classical music."
According to the information recently submitted to me, Dr. Ahlene was an
honorary member.  I feel guilty for not even knowing who he was.
That said, I believe we can remove his name from the hard-copy mailing list.
Also, if anyone knew Dr. Ahlene would they be willing to write something up
for the newsletter that would enlighten us newbies as to who he was?  Just a
thought.  Seems like we're losing too many good people lately...

2) By his own pen (or computer) on this very day Mr. Stanley Gorodenski
said, "Since I am not a SAC member..."  That said, I believe we can remove
his name from the hard-copy mailing list.

3) The remaining four have let their memberships lapse according to the
latest information forwarded to me from Rick Tejera.

So that leaves us with four individual members receiving hard-copy
newsletters...if they pay their dues.  Since dues are not paid, maybe we do
not need to send any of these hard-copy mailings out.  No, I'm not trying to
be a newsletter-nazi...just making a point.

Talk to you all soon...

Rick just sent me a new newsletter hard-copy mailing list. There are 7 fewer
names on it than last month, so we only have 6 to mail out now. I estimate
about $25 per issue will do it.

Still, I'd like to see the board adopt a position for 2012 with a proviso
that hard copy newsletters will cost the subscriber an additional $18 a year
or so.
