We ran out of time to get the upgrade completed, but it should get finished on the 4th of July. We made great progress, but the sheer number of articles (more than 31,000 have been posted and archived since 2012!!!) and the number of website components made it difficult to complete. Thanks for your patience. And you still have the updated visuals of the site to look forward to.

The Beat totally appreciates its readers!  Thanks for having patience during these busy days of spring!
