So much news to share this week, not necessarily from our headlines. We have a new food writer, Tim Cebula. Drop him a line. Tell him about your Portland food experiences. We'll have more new staff joining us soon. I'll introduce you to them as they arrive.

We also have a new page up that showcases our photographers' best work. Check out our Maine Darkroom. There's so much to see. And did you know that you can buy prints of our photos? They make great gifts - especially for people who love Maine but aren't lucky enough to live here.

Speaking of those people, if you know some, I'm starting a newsletter for them called Postcard from Maine, which I'll send out twice a month, full of our best photos and stories about arts and culture, the outdoors, food and restaurants and more. If you know anyone who might enjoy it, please pass on this link to sign up. I hope you'll also spread the word about this newsletter - that it's written by me, the Press Herald's city editor, and that I try to choose the most interesting stories to share with you each week. I'd love it if you told your friends and neighbors in the city to sign up here.

As you know, I'd also really like to hear from you. Send me a note anytime - with a photo you took in the city, a news tip, a suggestion, a favorite memory of Portland. I'll always be happy to get mail from you.

By the way, we're having a really interesting newsroom event tomorrow. Colin Woodard will be talking about tribal sovereignty with Maulian Dana, the Penobscot Nation Tribal Ambassador. You don't have to go anywhere to join in. It's virtual. You can register here. If you miss one of our Newsroom Live events, by the way, all is not lost. You can watch it later or check out our YouTube channel.

I just want to make sure you're taking advantage of all we have to offer.

- Thanks for tuning in, as always! Nita
