With only a month of publishing, the total subscriber count for the Times Vedette digital emails is now at 729 and continues to grow each issue. 

“We are inching closer to the 1,000 mark, and I suspect we will be there soon,” says Shane Goodman, editor and publisher. 

The twice-weekly newsletter is emailed over the lunch hour each Tuesday and Friday and includes timely results of games or meetings from the prior evening or that morning. 

“We are still learning,” said Goodman, noting that the jump to email has been welcomed by those who are used to getting their news digitally and sometimes confusing for those who aren’t. 

Goodman encourages all current subscribers to forward their newsletters to friends and family who may be interested in subscribing. Subscriptions are free and can be completed in seconds at www.gctimesnews.com.

He also stresses that the only data collected are the names and email addresses, and that the information is not sold or used in any other way like Nextdoor, Facebook or many of the Big Tech companies do. 

“I take my own privacy, and everyone else’s, very seriously,” said Goodman. 

Those who paid for subscriptions to the printed edition of the Times Vedette in 2023 and did not donate their unused portion to be a “Friend of the Times” will be receiving their refund checks in the next week, if they have not already.
