Next printed Westside Pioneer comes out Nov. 13The Westside Pioneer will print again Nov. 13.
Distribution will begin that day for 11,000 copies to roughly 50 outlets on the Westside, including both King Soopers stores and Safeway.
It will be the third newspaper this year for the family-owned and operated publication, which is now primarily online after serving as a weekly Westside news source for 10 years (January 2004 to December 2013).
Both print and online services are free to readers.
The goal of the upcoming issue, 16 pages in size (including 6 in color), will be to present breaking stories and to catch up print readers as needed on significant Westside news. Among these will be updates on various projects and events as well as dates and times of seasonal activities by businesses and schools. Popular columns, including Cobweb Corners and Meet a Westsider, will be back, and a new column by the Organization of Westside Neighbors will be introduced.
The Pioneer previously printed this year in May and August. There was a positive reader response to both issues, with all copies picked up over the weeks the papers were displayed in the Pioneer outlets.
After the November edition, the next printed publication will be in mid-January, featuring the paper's annual Westside Stories of the Year and 12-month calendar with a Pioneer photo for each month.
Publishers Kenyon and Therese Jordan are appreciative of the local businesses and other entities whose advertising makes the Pioneer possible, and they encourage readers to check out their offerings.
The paper's focus continues to be the Colorado Springs Westside, which the Pioneer defines as west of I-25, north of Cheyenne/Broadmoor, east of Manitou Springs and south of Garden of the Gods Road.
