Yikes, I knew google had killed many things, including a couple things I used, but I didn't know the list was so big.

i'm just plugging in the usb cable to print

fairly annoying but it works

i gave up trying to make it work wirelessly

the wife's pc laptop can still do it, though oddly my new air can't

go to print settings and add your printer and you should be able to print wirelessly on your air
