PublishersPointsI am proud to be the publisher of your newspaper. While reading a recent issue, I was reminded how many items are covered between the pages each week. Whether you read digitally, or enjoy the print version, your paper is where you can read about a wide variety of local topics in one location.

For example:

•The county schools are getting new district alignments.

•First-grade students received toothbrush kits that included a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and information about dental care.

•The Trinity Beautification committee has been working for a year on their beautification projects, and now has a new welcome sign on both ends of the main road.

•The Martin Senior Center is hosting a valentine’s lunch for only $10 that includes filet mignon.

•Cheer tryouts for Trinity are coming up March 9, and Nathaniel Dumas won a gold medal in the solo competition to qualify for state.

•Groveton High School dropped to Class 1A 20 years ago this month.

•A two-bedroom home in Groveton on Turner Street is for sale. Also, 37 acres on FM 230 in Trinity is for sale.

•Apple Springs had a big win against Slocum … it was a game with playoff implications.

•Early voting begins Feb. 20

•In other news, the City of Groveton is taking applications for the utilities secretary position, White Rock Storage is renting climate-controlled storage units, and Hoke Stump Grinding does large and small jobs.

Could your paper provide even more information to the community, more than the above-mentioned items, puzzles, happenings, classifieds, legal notices, advertisements, and obituaries? Yes.

Thanks to you, those who subscribe to this paper or buy it on the newsstand or advertise – you are the reason we can provide what we are providing. We are doing our best with our current resources to bring to you a paper compiled by educated/trained professionals. We also crowdsource information from so many of you who partner with us to bring the most complete newspaper for the county each issue. We will continue to work toward becoming even better and more complete.

When you think about your community, please remember to stay positive and be cooperative with your local newspaper. Make sure all the locals have an obituary in the local newspaper … for information, and to provide an archived history in one, safe location. When your company or organization is asked and/or required to run a legal notice, please consider it a small price to pay to make sure all our community can be informed of important things going on in the county. Sell your personal, business, and professional items and services within the pages of the newspaper.

According to well-documented statistics, a community with a good newspaper has higher voting turnout, more volunteerism, more community involvement, and more local commerce. We need each other to survive and thrive.

I look forward to our continued partnership. Reach out to me anytime. My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
