To our readers

In observance of Columbus Day, the Globe will follow weekend/holiday schedules on Monday with delivery in most areas by 8 a.m. Customer Service Department hours of operation are 8 a.m. to noon today, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

Beginning today, the comic strip Garfield, which was dropped from the daily Globe last month, will no longer appear in the Sunday comics. In its place the strip Calvin and Hobbes will appear for the next three months. A permanent replacement will be selected after that. In addition, the layout of the Sunday comics section and the Funpages has been reconfigured to accommodate the same number of comic strips in fewer pages.

The Globe welcomes information about errors that call for corrections. Information may be e-mailed to or left in a message at 617-929-8230.
