It was three years ago that we issued the first print edition in what would be a trend in the opposite direction of most publications. We started out on the web in 2007 and never thought about printing but the people of Frankford wanted a local newspaper and said so at the PhillyRising focus group meetings. Things started to click that summer and with the help of a lot of people (Tim Wisniewski, Patricia Coyne, Tracy O’Drain and Michelle Feldman) we got it done.
The August edition marks the start of year four. This would not be possible without the generous sponsorship of Health Partners Plans who prints the copy for us each month. You can find links to the pdf file of each of the print editions on the PRINT EDITION tab at the top of the page under the Gazette logo.
