We told you it was coming months ago ... and the day has finally arrived.

This afternoon, Billie and I board a plane in Buffalo and head off to California for a week.

We'll visit family in Ventura, Bakersfield and San Diego.

Alecia Kaus will monitor the scanner, handle breaking news and write a few other stories, so, dear readers, you're in good hands. We'll also pick up coverage from our news partner, WBTA.

And in the Digital Age, I'll never be far from The Batavian. I'm sure I'll have plenty of things to post over the week, maybe just not as timely as usual.

Nick Sabato will cover some sports for us.

Lisa Ace will be in the office all week (except Friday) during normal business hours to handle all of your advertising needs or sign you up for The Batavian Club. She can be reached at (585) 250-4118.

We're scheduled to return to Buffalo around noon on Jan. 20.

For the past three years, we've offered photos for sale through one particular site and a couple of months ago, we started selling photos through my photography site, howardowensphotography.com.

That is working pretty well, so I'm retiring the old photo sales site (so I no longer have to pay the hosting bill).

It would be a monumental task to transfer three years worth of photos from one site to another. So to ensure everybody who still might like to buy photos from the past three years a chance to buy those photos, I've drastically reduced their prices.

Click here to buy photos from the old site at ridiculously low prices. These photos will NOT be available for purchase after Jan. 31.

Of particular interest might shots from this past football season:

The gift cards can be used anytime in the next year (one per household, must present your membership card at time of redemption and cannot be combined with other discounts, including The Batavian's Deal of the Day).

And as we announced the other day, members will also receive a voucher for two free general admission tickets to a Batavia Muckdogs' game (July 3 excluded).

I look forward to you becoming a member and helping to support The Batavian. And thank you to all of the participating businesses. Any businesses that would like to be included can contact me at (585) 250-4118.

Our gift certificates can't be traded for cash, but in the local businesses that have agreed to honor them, they act just like cash -- saving you money. Currently, members can expect to save at least $255 at local businesses in the coming year as members. The cost of membership: Only about 1/5 of what members get in savings.

We now have enough local businesses supporting The Batavian Club to say that members will receive $250 in gift certificates with their membership cards (we're targeting the end of January to send out cards and gift certificates).

Based on some feedback, we're also creating a way for people to join through PayPal without making a recurring payment commitment. If you want to join, but don't want to commit to an annual payment, the fee is $60 (or $120 for a household membership) and you can use the PayPal buttons below. The price for people joining and paying by check will also now be $60/$120.

To be clear: For $60 (or $120 for a household), you can receive in return $250 in gift certificates that can be used at local businesses. That's a pretty good return on investment ...

I'm hoping to announce the participating businesses within the next week after I have a chance to -- I hope -- sign up a few more.

A reader of The Batavian has helped another recover a ring lost the day after Christmas that was more precious than valuable.

Lynn Halicki posted a lost-and-found notice to The Batavian's "Announcements" section and another reader spotted it, called her and returned the ring.

"The ring really has no monetary value - just sentimental value," Halicki said in her post.

After getting her ring back, Halicki posted a comment and wrote, "It made me extremely happy and proud that there are so many GOOD people!!!!!!"

Some of you may have already noticed that certain people now, when they leave a comment on a story, have a little "club member" icon below their names.

This means these people have elected to help support The Batavian by becoming club members and we want to recognize their support.

The other change we've made is people who are not yet members will get a reminder to join every time they log into the site (our software, in a pattern I've never been able to figure out, occasionally asked people to reenter their usernames and passwords). After people enter their usernames and passwords, they will hit a screen that offers them the opportunity to continue with their login or join The Batavian Club. There is still no obligation to join the club to read news or comment on stories, but we want to remind people how important it is that they support our local news efforts.

Plus, members get benefits such as discounts at local businesses -- a monetary value that exceeds the cost of membership.

Look at how many of these stories The Batavian broke or brought you more information about than available in other news sources. The Batavian broke the story about Jacquetta Simmons at Walmart on Christmas Eve, 2011 and was in front of the competition as the story developed. The Batavian brought to light the local issues with bath salts and either broke stories or had stories the competition never even carried. The Batavian carried more in-depth stories that were widely read on the tic disorder issue in Le Roy. We work hard to bring you news about Genesee County.

People ask me from time to time why we created The Batavian Club. The simple reason is, it's all about creating an ongoing business.

A newspaper makes money from retail advertising, from classified advertising and subscription fees.

For an online news site, we already know people are no longer willing to pay for classified ads and they don't want to pay for news.

Typically, then, that leaves one revenue source for an online news site: advertising.

Billie and I very much appreciate the revenue we get from our sponsors. It has allowed us to keep up with our bills and hire a single employee. We would like to hire more people, but the advertising pie is going to get only so big (and it's probably as big as it's going to get now).

That's where you come in: Help support The Batavian by becoming a member. The membership fee is less than a typical newspaper subscription.

Here's our promise of what we'll do for you in return: Not only will we work to make The Batavian better, we'll work to bring you real member benefits, primarily in the form of savings at local businesses.

Tonight we e-mailed coupons from three local businesses -- Valle Jewelers, West Main Wine and Spirits, and Southside Deli -- to our current members.

With these three coupons, plus the discounts previously available, members have achieved a potential savings of more than $50 (not counting the free calendar for annual members).

Here's the exciting part: We're working with local businesses to bring you even more savings. We are developing a membership package that will include gift certificates to local businesses. So far, 11 local businesses have agreed to participate. The total value of the gift certificates so far is $173. Over the next few weeks, I'll talk with more local business owners about participating (We'll announce details of the membership program in January; the first membership packages will go out when we reach 100 members (we're at 58 now)).

So, already, we can tell you, a membership in The Batavian Club more than pays for itself. If you love The Batavian, as many of you tell me everyday that you do, please help us become even better.

People who become annual members will of The Batavian Club by the end of the day tomorrow will receive a 2013 calendar of Genesee County photos by Howard Owens. After tomorrow, no more orders for calendars will be accepted and the calendars will not be available for sale.

You can purchase the calendar for $25, or the better deal is to become an annual member of The Batavian Club by Dec. 15 and receive a free copy as part of your membership.

We're only printing as many copies are as sold (plus a few for gifts) and have been ordered by Dec. 15, so the calendar will not be available as a membership premium after Dec. 15.

Plus, we still have $5 gift certificates available for the first 60 members of The Batavian Club.

The slide show above contains the photos that will be used in the calendar. You can also click the "view gallery" link embedded in the slide show to visit my photography Web site and purchase individual prints, if you like.

Most of you have already seen Billie's post from this morning about my taking some time off today for medical tests.

There was a health concern we thought it best to examine, and it turned out to be nothing.

I did have a minor surgical procedure performed and for that reason I can't leave the house tomorrow (Thursday) and need to take it slow for a few days, but the bottom line is the tests were negative and I'm fine.

I will start working again tomorrow, but for tomorrow, just on news I can cover from home.

I do want to say the staff at UMMC today was outstanding -- friendly, cheerful, caring and, most of all, professional.

Thank you for the notes of support from several readers.
