By Amanda Nason, Columbia Valley Pioneer associate publisher

We are pleased to announce that the April 9 issue of the Columbia Valley Pioneer will be available in print. We will include a dedicated section on COVID-19 with information you need as the situation unfolds.

With extremely hard work and dedication to our community, we have been working with local advertisers and organizations to keep our content available both in print and online. The Pioneer is no different than any other business in that we need to cover our costs. We will monitor the situation week to week and leave no stone unturned as we do our best to keep the print version available for our readers. Please know that we are working hard to keep you informed.

Thank you to everyone who has made it possible for our next issue to be available in print. Together we are stronger!
