Hello Everyone,

I'm writing to let you know that we are looking for a new home for The 
Last Straw.  The time has come when we are absolutely overwhelmed 
pulling off publishing the magazine on top of our regular jobs and 
raising a two-year old.  I am saddened to have to resort to seeking a 
new home for TLS, but I also can't continue letting deadlines slip and 
feeling the guilt.

So please take this as a call for any interested folks out there who may 
be interested in shepherding TLS along, please contact me.  I have to 
let everyone know that we won't be shoving it off on just anyone.  If 
you, or someone you know, is interested you or they will need not only a 
background in natural building, but a penchant for writing and a real 
passion for this sort of thing.

In terms of what it entails publishing a small rag, I won't beat around 
the bush, this is not a glamorous or high paying gig.  We have managed 
to not spend any of our own money on TLS, but we also don't make 
anything either.  It does make for a good way to write off trips to, 
say, New Zealand...and it's a great way to keep in touch with alot of 
your friends.  Maybe there is a small group of you who could band 
together.  We have a few advertising contracts that have recently been 
renewed or are coming back up for renewal, and with a little effort 
there could be many more.  The website has been rebuilt a couple times 
in the past few years and is in great shape.  All in all it's ripe for 
someone to come in and take it up another notch.  It even comes with a 
layout person ready to go - our beloved Satomi Lander.

If you are interested, contact me with questions offline from the group 
and I'll do my best to answer them.  Feel free to also use this email 
address for correspondence:  tlseditor at thelaststraw.org

Cheers,

Jeff
