Welcome to debut edition of The Shawnee News-Star Weekender.

The Shawnee News-Star Weekender combines the Saturday and Sunday editions into a new, bigger and better weekend edition with all your favorite features and some new ones too.

All of the usual content you've come to expect and enjoy on Saturdays, plus the features and content that are in Sunday's newspaper, along with sales ads and coupons, TV Guide and Lifestyles, are in this edition. You'll have all weekend to read and enjoy your new, combined Weekender edition.

The Weekender will be distributed every Saturday.

If you're on a delivery route via U.S. Mail, you'll get your weekend paper in Saturday's mail. If you're on a carrier delivery route, your Weekender will arrive on your porch or doorstep on Saturday mornings just like usual.

If you're an E-edition reader, the Weekender will be ready to read online early Saturday morning.

Since the newspaper you're receiving today is the new Weekender edition for both Saturday and Sunday, the next delivered newspaper will be on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

And while there will be news, sports and other things going on in between those editions, don't worry — we'll be updating you as usual online at www.news-star.com as well as on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/shawneenewsstar, and on Twitter, @shawneenewsstar.

Another reminder: If you're a print subscriber, you get free access to the online edition. If you haven't set that up yet or have questions about that or an online subscription, please call customer service at (405) 214-3945.
