The Journal is printed for local distribution on legal size paper. When we reduce it to 8-1/2 x 11 and change the pages to PDF format, some of the headings and boxes are not attached to the copy on the same page or column. This is not easily correctable as it looks right on our screen, and it is a trial and error situation to correct. We hope you understand.
